Details

We will hike from the upper trailhead of Elk Meadows Park to the summit of Bergen Peak. This a great moderate hike suitable for fit beginners and new members.



Microspikes or similar foot traction required (trails may be icy)



If you are a new-to-me hiker and don't have a Denver B classification, no problem. Please register and shoot me an email letting me know what you've been up to the past few months as far as hiking and training.



Typical CMC rules:




  • Departure time is strict. Meet early to avoid disappointment.

  • No dogs (this is not a doggie hike).

  • Pay your driver if you carpool ($10 per car).

  • Please note that hike time is unpredictable and I can't guarantee a return time. So please don't schedule a hot date after the hike. Also, please arrange appropriate child/pet care so you won't feel the need to rush back.

  • The group hikes together. Please plan to adjust your pace as needed.



*This is a Bobcat 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.  Although we have members, 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 mailing list, write or call CMC Membership Services at: office@cmc.org or (303) 279-3080.



Please call/email with any questions.




Notes

We will make a social stop for lunch after the hike. Please drive separately if you don't plan to stay for lunch.




Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
