FOR RMOTHG MEMBERS ONLY. We're visiting North Rock Creek north of Silverthorne on Hwy 9, a less-frequently used trail in Eagles nest Wilderness. We'll start on a wide trail in a valley thru forest, and then gently ascend a trail into the Bailey Bird Nesting Area. We will snowshoe at a SLOW, CASUAL PACE. We will go the the junction of the Gore Range Trail and depending on the group may go a little further before we return to our lunch spot. We will return by the same trail.


Please bring your 10 essentials, plenty of water, warm layers, snacks, lunch, medical kit, completed Emergency Card (If you don't have one, I will give you one at the Parking Lot), poles. Please look for an email from Sandy McRae the night before the trip for weather forecast and last minute information. (I might possibly send one out earlier if conditions warrant.) Please let me know about medical conditions that might affect the trip (you can email me with this info). If you have to cancel, please cancel on the CMC website AND call Sandy McRae.
If people are interested we could make a short snack stop at the Blue Moon Bakery in Silverthorne.

Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
