Details

We will set up a car shuttle for this hike.  Leave 1 vehicle at entrance to Elevenmile Canyon.  Drive to south end of Blue Mtn. and start there.  Hike south ridge of Blue Mtn.; then head west to Unnamed 9,122'; then north to "Elevenmile Overlook"; then north to entrance to Elevenmile Canyon.  Most of the route will be off trail, but the vegetation isn't very dense.  There are a few boulders to negotiate at the top of "Elevenmile Overlook".  Bring gaiters and microspikes.  If there is a lot of snow (not too likely) then snowshoes might be needed.




Notes

Trip leader lives in Florissant. (About 6 miles from Elevenmile Canyon.)

Participants wishing to carpool from Colorado Springs can meet at the Safeway in Old Colorado City.  Plan to leave there by 8am.




Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
