Details

This is a beautiful spring hike with great views of Pikes Peak. It is rated as a C for those WTS students needing their C rating.  WTS students welcome but others as well. The lower segment is exposed and may be warm. The trail should be free of snow most of the way but some ice may occur near Barr Camp and microspikes are recommended. We'll break for lunch at Barr Camp and then return the way we came. Barr camp is staffed and sells beverages. Water must be treated. Bring 10 essentials, lunch, snacks and plenty of water.



At a moderate pace, we should be back at the cars around 4 p.m. This hike is rated moderate, but at moderate pace, rest breaks will be short except we will take about 30 minutes for lunch at Barr Camp.  Hikers should be in good condition for the mileage and elevation gain.
