We will start at the winter TH for Wild Basin in RMNP.  We will head up the Thunder Lake trail and continue pass Ouzel Falls to the intersection with the alternate campground loop then head back to the Wild Basin Ranger station from there.  If we have time we will make a short detour to Hidden Falls.  Total distance about 10.0 miles and 1,700' elevation gain.  We will snowshoe at a moderate pace.  Please check your snowshoes prior to the trip.  We will snowshoe in cold and difficult weather, no weather cancellations.  We will only cancel if travel to the TH is unsafe.

Parts of the trail will be in deep snow and we will take turns breaking trail.



Please dress appropriately for the weather conditions.  A weather report, trip plan and map will be sent via email the week of the trip.



Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
