Details

Hike 6.5 miles one way through scrub oak, pines, aspen and rock formations on your way to Barr Camp. Once we arrive, we will spend approx 30 minutes at camp for a brief lunch prior to heading back down. This is a long and steep hike. The trail may be dry with slippery scree. Wear shoes with good traction and poles are a good idea but not required. Pack foot traction in case there is ice present on the trail. Check the weather forecast and pack the appropriate gear. Bring trail snacks, plenty of water, sunscreen, hat, sunglasses, first aid kit, etc. Bring a filter if you plan to filter water at Barr Camp before heading back down or pay $5.00 to use the Camp's filter. You will be able to purchase Gatorade, candy bars, T-shirts, etc. from the Camp.
