Details

There is a section of this hike which will REQUIRE the use of microspikes.Please make sure to bring them. I hiked this route a few days ago and it was a nice hike. One section of the stream has frozen and there is some ice on the trail, thus the reason for microspikes. But it also created some nice views of ice falls. With mircospikes this section was very doable.



There is a gentle uphill climb to the peak. We can also visit Windy Peak it the group wishes to do so.



We will meet at the Coors Tech Parking Lot east of the Colorado Mountain Club; then drive up from there. We will meet at 8 AM and leave by 8:10 AM. Would look to be back by early to mid-afternoon. Can consider after hike refreshments at the Cast Iron Tavern.




Notes

I will watch the weather and put out an email the day before. Look forward to seeing everyone who joins us.
