From the Hollowell Park Trailhead we will head up to Bierstadt Lake.  For the first mile you will probably only need microspikes but beyond that snowshoes will be needed as I suspect we will be breaking trail most of the way to Bierstadt.  On the way back down we will do an off trail descent.  Snow is in the forecast this week in the Estes Park area so the off trail descent should be fun and is a relatively easy off trail descent.  While we are snowshoeing off trail we will use some GPS waypoints to navigate our way so be sure to bring your compass to practice setting and following compass bearings.  Although there is some off trail on this trip, this would be a great snowshoe trip for any new CMC members or first time snowshoers.  The trip leader has some extra pairs of snowshoes if you need to borrow them.

The total distance should be approximately 5 miles.

Refreshment stop in Estes Park after the snowshoe. 

Feel free to contact the trip leader with any questions.



Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
