Details

 



This hike is in Meyer Ranch Park, a Jefferson County Open Space Park near Conifer.  Most of the hike is on well established trails through forests of lodge pole pine and aspen trees.  From the Old Ski Run Trail, we will take a less established trail to Legault Mountain where we will be rewarded with beautiful sweeping views to the north, east, and south.  If time allows we may circle on some other trails w/in park. 



The trailhead is at 7850 ft and the top of Legault Mountain is at 9074 ft elevation.



 



 



 




Notes

If there has been a recent snow microspikes may be beneficial. Want to be back at The Fort Restaurant by 4pm or earlier...

 

 

*This is a Bobcats 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. We may sponsor other activities of interest to our members, everything from bike rides to camping. Although we have members, we don’t have dues or elections, and our trips are non-exclusive. We welcome all CMC members to sign up for any Bobcats trip regardless of age or Bobcats membership.
