Details

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.
