Details

This will be a casual, out and back snowshoe hike along the Colorado Trail from the west side of Kenosha Pass. We will snowshoe out about 3 miles, have a break for lunch, and then return.  The round trip mileage is estmated at 6 miles.  For those interested – a post-hike stop in Conifer will be an option.



Climbs are mostly gradual but keep in mind that there is a steady climb on the way back.  We will be below treeline but enjoy some openings along the trail. We will avoid any avalanche terrain – none on planned route.
