Read, Ramble, Reflect*

Book: "Rocky Mountian National Park: A History" by C.W. Buchholtz

Hike: Odess Lake (via Fern Lake Trail Head), 9.5 miles, 1890 feet, Bobcat Pace (2 miles/1,00 feet per hour)

Fern Lake exemplifies an early, very popular trail that was constructed and maintained by lodgekeepers and local tourism boosters before the national park was established.  Natural and built features (lodges, bridges, waterfalls, creeks and lakes) identify the path.  The trail connects these important features.




The Bobcats provide a variety of challenging CMC trips each month — mostly hikes rated B-Difficult and C, and Difficult Snowshoes — for our mostly age-50+ constituents. We coordinate participating leaders, and then publish links to their trips as part of our monthly newsletter. Our trips are mostly on weekdays and mostly 12 participants or less. We sponsor any activity of interest to our members, everything from biking to camping. Although we have members, our trips are non-exclusive. We welcome all CMC members to sign up for any Bobcat trip regardless of age or Bobcats membership.

Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
