Location

We will meet at The Fort Restaurant (1st exit off of Hwy 285 west of the C470 highway) at 6:45 for a 7 am start.  We drive over Kenosha Pass, taking a left on Lost Park Road for 16.9 miles.  This is a gravel road that can be washboardy.  Round trip mileage is 135 miles, meaning driver compensation will be about $40 per car.

If you haven't been up Bison Peak before, you are in for a treat.  If you look at photos online, you will know why all the descriptions are so glowing!  Giant granite formations start at the saddle and accompany you all the way to the top.  We start from the Lost Creek Campground at 9,961' elevaton, following the Brookside McCurdy Trail to the saddle, then on up to the summit at 12,431'.

Details

We're getting into summer weather, so an early start will help to insure we get up and down before potential lightning.  Bring your 10 essetials.  I will send out weather 2 days before the trip and that will help us finetune our plans.
