Please join me at the CoorsTek parking lot, across the street from the Colorado Mountain Club, at 7:00 a.m., form carpools, and depart by 7:15 a.m. We'll travel to the White Ranch Open Space Park lower parking lot. [Head NE 10th Street toward Jackson Street => Turn NB Ford Street => Turn WB Pine Ridge Road, cross CO HWY - 93 => White Ranch Open Space Park lower parking lot.]

We'll ascend the Belcher Hill Trail in these three distincy segments -- NW 1.1 mile => SW 0.7 mile => 0.6 mile -- then follow the WB Mustang Trail for 2.0 miles, before beginning our descent on the Sawmill Trail for 0.8 mile => Belcher Hill Trail, with an optional off trail traverse. Return to the CMC by 1:30 p.m.

I shall shorten the hike based on current weather conditions, group cohesiveness, and individual stamina, strength, condition and endurance. The intention is to have a fun-filled outing in the wintry weather conditions. I highly recommend bringing trekking poles, traction devices, gaiters and extra, warm clothing.
