John's backcountry theme for 2019 is to hike all 37 wilderness areas in Colorado. This trip intends to bag James Peak Wilderness Area.

From the East Portal TH hike SW on 900 to turn hard right on 809 (Forest Lake Trail) to lower Forest lake. Return same way. Snow drifts may be a problem, but we'll go take a look and do what we can.  


No tigers. We will stay together and set a pace for the slowest hiker, which will probably be our leader. 

An email will be sent to all participants two days before the hike with weather forecast and last minute info.


Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
