Location

In an endeavor to stay out of snow, we will hike from Echo Lake on the Resthouse Trail to the Lincoln Lake Trail to Lincoln Lake, which has towering views of Mt Evans.  After two miles of hikng we reach Vance Creek, then come upon a recovering burn area from the 1960's.  Our high point is at the lake, 11,565'.  And yes, this is one of those trails where you will have about 600' gain on the way back out.

We meet at the Wooly Mammoth Park and Ride in Morrison, Section BB at 6:30 am for a no later than 6:45 start.
