Details

We will drive to the entrance of the  Elk Management Area, west of Evergreen.  From here, we will hike up through the beautiful Groundhog Flats area and along the banks of scenic Bear Creek.  The trail wanders upwards through interesting rock formations and open woodlands, with occasional views of Mt. Evans.  After passing through a scenic meadow with the ruins of an old settler's cabin, we will reach another meadow at the top of a ridge, then descend to Lost Creek.  We will follow Lost Creek downstream to the Camp Rock Road, then follow the road (closed to vehicles) back to the TH.



If group wants, we can hike a ways up either Lost Creek or Indian Creek.



We will decide before the trip what equipment we need.



 



 



 




Notes

This is a Bobcats trip. The Bobcats' mission is to ensure a variety of challenging CMC trips, especially “B Difficult” and “C” hikes and Difficult Snowshoes, for our mostly age-50+ constituents. We may sponsor other activities of interest to our members, everything from bike rides to camping. Although we have members, we don’t have dues or elections, and our trips are non-exclusive. We welcome all CMC members to sign up for any Bobcats trip regardless of age or Bobcats membership. To join our free mailing list, write Membership Services at office@cmc.org or call them at (303) 279-3080.a
