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 fall walk through a calm forest or a bit chllier as a couple short stretches get some wind. Either way, the uphill will keep you warm and the cabin provides and out of the wind spot to warm up and eat. 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 7:45 a.m. https://goo.gl/maps/3z2yMGepvpT2



We'll 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. Additional info in the days leading up to the hike. For more information on Barr Camp. http://www.barrcamp.com/index.php
