Details

We will snowshoe off east Guanella Pass Road on the Abyss Lake trail.  Depending upon conditions (I'm scouting this on Sunday or Monday), we will snowshoe in 2-1/2 to 3 miles, stop for lunch, and then return.  Most elevation gain is in the first mile but the grade is not severe.   Bring snowshoes, poles, ten essentials, and layers.



I will send out an email on Tuesday with an update on trail conditions and the weather.



 



 




Notes

For those who are interested, we'll enjoy coffee and/or ice cream at the Staples Shopping center in Conifer.
