I am a D - rated trip leader and Senior WTS Instructor. I will bring hand and foot warmers and extra gloves. Come dress warmly and test yourself against the pre-winter cool weather conditions. Bring the Ten Essentials; microspikes or yaktracks are recommended in the event we traverse icy patches on the trail.



Details

Some outdoor activity before the holiday. A close in trail hike in Jeffco Open Space Park. Hike the Meadow View Trail to Bergen Peak Trail. Return same way, or via a longer circle route.




Notes

Please DO NOT bring any cotton garments to wear on this trip. Hypothermia, not lightning strike potential, is the biggest seasonal risk for trip participants.




Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
