FOREST LAKES SNOWSHOE CHANGED TO  WHITE RANCH PARK RAWHIDE LOOP TRAIL

We wll meet at the CMC parking lot NE of the CMC building Golden, CO 80401 at 7:50 AM and leave promptly at 8:00 AM. 

This is an up and down meandering trail with amazing views for the entire snowshoe.

 

We will be doing a lollipop along the Rawhide trail for 2.5 miles where we will have lunch and then return down on the Rawhide trail cutting across on the Wranglers Run and retracing our steps to the car.

I just spoke with Jeffco open space and the trails are muddy in the sun and icy in the shade with some snow in parts. So we will use microspikes,

Directions to trailhead from Meeting location. From the CMC parking lot go to Highway 58 to Highway 93.  Turn right on Highway 93.  At approximately 1 mile turn right on Golden Gate Road.  Travel west approximately 4.1 miles to Crawford Gulch Road (Highway 57). Turn right (north) follow the signs to White Ranch Park.  We are parking ath the end of the dead end road in the parking area.

Weather forecast is sostly sunny, with a high near 51. Breezy, with a west wind 14 to 16 mph, with gusts as high as 25 mph.
