From the Loveland Pass crest, traverse the Continental Divide ridge east and north to the Sniktau summit. Panoramic views of the high peaks in this area.


This trip should be clear hike but we willl keep an eye on the weather and late Spring snow.  Please review your 10 essentials: snacks, water, windbreaker, sun screen/lip balm, etc.  Micro spikes and/or snow shoes might be needed.  It can be extremely windy at the top of Sniktau so bring a snack and wind jacket.  I will update everyone as we get closer to the date.
