We will ski from the Red Rock Trailhead at Brainard Lake along the Middle Sourdough Trail to the Beaver Bog TH and return the same way.

The trail is narrow, occasionally steep, and winds through the woods. Good basic skiing skills required.

Please bring skis with metal edges (Nordic NNN fine). 

If you are a new-to-me skier and don't have a Denver skier 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 skiing 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: or (303) 279-3080.


Lunch stop at Crosscut Pizza in Nederland after. 


Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
