Details

From Kenosh Pass we follow the Colorado Trail westward up the ridge a bit then descend into South Park and follow around  the northeast periphery of the park to where the trail passes Jefferson Hill.  Here we leave the trail for a short distance on an old road and then climb the east face of the hill.  The summit ascent will be exploratory for the leader but there is some scrambling involved. Rating this trip "difficult" accounts for possible scrambling.  For those not interested in scrambling you could wait somewhat below the summit in which case this is a B-moderate hike.  We return the way we came.  This is a hike and not a snowshoe trip.



This trip is a repeat from last year where we did not get to the summit because the leader had chosen a poor route and got sidetracked into an excessive snow area.
