From either the Glacier Gorge Trailhead (if parking spots are still available) or the Bear Lake Trailhead we will head up the "Winter Trail" to Mills Lake in RMNP.  Depending on weather conditions and how everyone in the group is doing we may also go a little further to Jewel Lake.

This is an easy snowshoe trip and would be a great first snowshoe for any newer CMC members who have never snowshoed before or more experienced CMC members who want to go on an easy snowshoe to get ready for bigger and better trips later in the snowshoeing season.

It can be extremely windy at Mills Lake so be sure to pack warm clothing and something to break the wind.

Refreshment stop in Estes Park after the snowshoe for those that are interested. 

Feel free to contact the trip leader with any questions.
