Comanche National Grasslands- about 25 miles south of La Junta at the Withers Canyon Campground & Trailhead. This is a basic campground without water. Make sure you bring plenty of water for three days.

For more info Contact

Phil Kummer-303-888-7506


Meet Friday morning at 10:00 at the RTD Park & Ride at southwest corner of South Wadsworth & Hampden.
Drive to the Forest Service office in La Junta at: 1420 E. 3rd Street.
Regroup and then drive to Withers Canyon Campground & Trailhead.

The campground is about 25 miles south of La Junta. Due to dirt roads that can become impassable when wet I will CANCEL the trip if there has been precipitation the previous day or during the trip,

Bring all of your own food & supplies for three days. I recommend a good cooler.

We might cross the Purgatoire River so bring appropriate footwear.

For more info:


Friday afternoon and Sunday morning we will have time to explore the area and take some short hikes


Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
