The Fort Restaurant is located on Hwy 8, just north of Hwy 285, off the first southbound exit after C-470.  Between the restaurant parking lot and Hwy 8, there is a dirt area where people pull in to carpool up into the mountains.  http://tinyurl.com/hq3hs48

Details

This is an easy and pleasant hike.   



Although this is for new CMC members, all are welcome.  We will answer new members' practical questions and talk about pace, clothing, gear, etc.  



Please bring those of the  10 essentials  appropriate to a four-hour hike and that day's possible weather.  Wear proper hiking boots.  No jeans or cotton  clothing.  We can talk more about all that on trip day.



Spikes  may be recommended!  



Unlikely, but snowshoes could be an option (i.e. not required).  



Never snowshoed?  It's as easy as walking.  Rent a pair at REI or your local mountain store, get snow baskets (usually the same brand) to fit your hiking poles, be sure your hiking boots are waterproof, add some gaiters, and you will be good to go. We'll show you a  few tricks, if need be.



I will email you a day or two ahead to advise of trail conditions
