Details

This snowshoe starts out of Silver Plume at exit 226 and follows the gentle Argentine Central Grade Railroad route to the Waldorf mine. We will go to Pavilion Point and maybe a little beyond. Good views of I-70 below and snow-capped peaks surrounding Pavilion Point. Bring snowshoes, poles with baskets, gaiters and traction. Bring lunch to eat at Pavilion Point. Plan on 4-5 hours for hike. 




Notes

Scouted Thursday, Feb. 22 with Stan Moore on his hike--Waldorf Road, Pavilion Point, Argentine Train Trail TH car shuttle snowshoe. Plenty of snow, wore snowshoes the entire way. Little or no avalanche problems.

On trail at 9, Pavilian Point at 10:30 for snack. At Argentine Train Trail by 12:15. Car shuttle took 40 minutes.
