Details

Located about 15 miles north of Rifle, these limestone caves, hidden behind frozen waterfalls, display an amazing tapestry of ice that filters the outside light in intense shades of blue. The caves are accessed by a short trail from the road. After exploring the caves, we'll drive further up the road, put on cross-country skis or snowshoes, and follow a groomed trail up to Coulter Ranch for lunch. Foot traction devices (Yaktrax, micro-spikes, etc.) required. Cross-country ski equipment or snowshoes required. Short coffee stop on the way in. Plan to help pay for gas and entry fees on the day of the trip. Cost for lunch is $16/person. Send check for $16 made out to "Colorado Mountain Club Aspen Group; to: Mike Miller, 5145 Crystal Bridge Drive, Carbondale, CO 81623. Please specify if vegetarian or special dietary needs.
