Details

We will hike the trail from the Dos Chappell Nature Center starting at 11, 540 feet to the upper trailhead at 12,152 feet and back.  On July 1st, 2013,  we observed over 50 different species of subalpine and alpine wildflowers there.  Bring your cameras, water, lunch & a pencil for the approximately 3 hour hike.  I'll have a flower check list for  you.  Rain gear is advisable as a sunny day can quickly turn into a stormy day at this elevation.
