Details

We will set up a car shuttle so we can make a "one-way" trip. We leave a car at the Meadows Trailhead (across CO-14 from the Blue Lake Trailhead) then proceed to the Zimmerman Lake Trailhead. From here we will go uphill 500 feet on-trail to Zimmerman Lake. At the lake we will pick up the Meadows Trail and follow it down to Long Draw Rd and follow the road/trail back to the Meadows Trailhead. As we near the road there may be an opportunity to do a bit of off trail skiing (we will dicuss this with the group at this point). This is not an extreme ski trip, but note that the Meadows trail is not level (it goes up and down) AND the path is narrow in portions, NOT wide like a groomed trail.



Note that the trip up to Zimmerman Lake is uphill so I recommend if you have skins that you bring them.
