Location

Meeting Location: Wooly Mammoth parking lot AA across from Conoco gas station I-70 exit 259 at 9 am.

Directions to trailhead at  Echo Lake. I-70 west to Idaho Springs Exit 240,  then south on CO-103 for 13 miles to Echo Lake lot by the entrance to Mt Evans Road.  Trailhead GPS = 39.65654, -105.59579. 

Activity:  We plan to hike to the Mt Evans visitor center that is 2.5 miles from the Mt Evans Road entrance.  This hike follows the Mt Evans road so the grade is mild.  The section of road we plan to hike should be packed in by previous hikers.  There may be drifts in some places. There may be bare sections. Bring snowshoes and microspikes in case there is fresh snow.  Be able to attach you snowshoes to your day pack. The starting altitude is 10687 and the visitor center is at 11557.  The pace will be slow!

Social Plan:  Optional social stop at Kum-&-Go across from Wolly Mammoth parking lot.

Note:  This hike was planned for Jan 23 but was changed to the Rest Houlse Trail due to high winds.
