Location

Meet at 6:45AM at Wooly Mammoth Park and Ride -section BB, at Exit 259 off I-70 (just west of C-470), for a 7:00 AM departure.  

We will start at Loveland Pass (11,990').  From Loveland Pass, we will head east, along the Continental Divide, up to an unnamed peak (12,915'). From there we will head north, over another unnamed peak (elevation 13,152') to Mt. Sniktau (Elevation 13,284').  From Mt. Sniktau, we will return south to the unnamed peak (elevation 13,152'), then continue further south along the Continental Divide to Mt. Cupid (Elevation 13,117').  From Mt. Cupid, we will return to Loveland Pass.

If it's not too windy, we'll have a snack on Sniktau and lunch on Cupid.

There are beautiful views all around from the ridges and peaks on this hike. You need to bring 10 essentials and good wind gear, head to ankle.

Directions from Wooly Mammoth to Loveland Pass: drive west on I-70 for 42 miles, take exit 216 and drive 4.6 miles further to the top of Loveland Pass, park on leftside.

Drive Miles: 94 RT ($28 split per car amongst all participants).  After driving back to Wooly Mammoth parking lot, for those interested, we'll drive north of the road with the Kum & Go to Over Yonder Brewing Company.
