Details

Hike Meadow Creek Trailhead in Silverthorne to Eccles Pass area. This hike begins in the forest and gradually ascends to a beautiful mountain valley. The views of the Gore Range from the pass should be stunning in winter. We will climb to Eccles Pass, assuming safe conditions. We will avoid avalanche terrain. 



This is a (semi) exploratory trip. Leader has been here in summer, but not winter. Please bring your exploratory spirit. 



Snowshoes and microspikes required.



If you're a new-to-me hiker and don't have a Denver C or D classification, that's OK. Please shoot me an email to let me know what sort of hiking and training you've been up to for the past couple of months. **Please note that if I can't reach you within a reasonable time to verify your experience, you will be removed from the trip without notice.**



This will be an all-day event. Please plan to be out the full time. Don't set up a hot date for the evening.



Typical CMC rules apply: No dogs (this is not a doggie hike), pay your driver if you carpool ($36/car, split between driver and riders).



*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: office@cmc.org or (303) 279-3080.



Email/text if you have any questions!




Notes

We'll make a dinner/social stop on the way home. If you don't plan to attend, please arrange to drive separately to the trailhead.




Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
