Barr Camp. Maybe you've heard about it but never been. Here's a chance to check it out. It's an historic log cabin in the woods with a wood-burning stove and friendly caretakers. There's coffee, hot chocolate, snacks and Barr Camp merch for sale. This could be a strenuous spring walk through the forest or possibly a snowshoe. (Either way you can usher March in with a Lyon, if not like a lion.) Note the elevation gain of 3700 feet - it gets the blood pumping, especially the first three miles. The trail is often snowpacked and icy in its shaded spots so bring spikes/tracks and poles. We'll break for lunch at Barr Camp and then return the way we came, being careful to mind the ice in the shady spots and to dodge the runners coming off the incline. Depending on pace (moderate) and shuttle timing, we should be back at the cars around 4:30 p.m.


We’ll meet at the free shuttle stop in Manitou at 10 Old Man Trail, no later than 7:50a.

 so we can catch the 8:00 bus and hit the trail by 8:30. Old Man Trail is a right hand turn just past the Chase Bank on the right.  Do not park in spots reserved for the Spa. If you're reading this Friday day night and the trip is not full, please text the leader at 719.650.3043 to confirm. Additional info in the days leading up to the hike. For more information on Barr Camp.
