Location

We will meet at Wooly Mammoth Park N Ride, Lot AA, at 8:50AM to arrange carpools. We will leave promptly at 9:00. This lot is at the far west end of Wooly Mammoth.  Plan to drive, or pay your driver $3.00 for your ride.  Your driver may not have change for you, so $20 would be a wonderful bonus!

We can meet you at the trailhead if it is closer for you than coming to Wooly Mammoth. Please let me know so that we don't wait for you at Wooly Mammoth.

Details

We will hike at a casual pace in Evergreen area at Elk Meadow Park, starting at Stagecoach trailhead.  We will do a 5 mile loop, along Meadowview to Rounders, then Painters Pause, Sleepy S, and back to Meadowview.  Although this is a likely park for seeing elk, it may be more likely we will see dogs and bikes, both under control at all times, we hope! 



The trail passes through trees and open meadows.  Be prepared for snow and/or ice on the trail depending on the weather early in the week.  Poles and possibly traction devices may be needed.  As always have your food, water and snacks as well as your 10 essentials.  It is winter so be prepared for cold temperatures and possibly wind.



 



 




Notes

If you have to cancel please notify me and cancel online.

On Tuesday evening, by 7:00PM, I will send an email to participants with any changes to our itinerary, final instructions and weather report.  Please let me know if you don't receive the note.  Please notify me prior to our hike of any medical issues that may affect your participation in the trip.




Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
