Details

This trail is very flat at the beginning, under tree cover and some open meadows.  After about 2 miles, we will start climbing. Depending on the trail conditions, we will go for about 5 miles in total, then return the same way.



There will be a short stop on US 285 on the way to the trail head.



Don’t forget to bring your Ten Essentials.



 



There will be a celebratory stop after the hike for those you want to; it is completely optional.



 



If you are new to snowshoeing and not yet ready to purchase new equipment, I can teach you the basics at the trailhead. And if you are a strong hiker, you should be able to keep up with us. Please note that even an experienced snowshoer needs to expend more energy than she would if she were merely hiking.



By the end of trip, you should be almost an expert.  Also note that, as a rule, microspikes might also be needed at some point during the trip.



 





Notes

This is a Bobcats trip. The Bobcats' mission is to ensure a variety of challenging CMC trips, especially “B Difficult” and “C” hikes and Difficult Snowshoes, for our mostly age-50+ constituents.  We may sponsor other activities of interest to our members, everything from bike rides to camping. Although we have members, we don’t have dues or elections, and our trips are non-exclusive. We welcome all CMC members to sign up for any Bobcats trip regardless of age or Bobcats membership. To join our free mailing list, write Membership Services at office@cmc.org or call them at (303) 279-3080.

 



Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
