Particpants from the Denver area can meet at the Highway 36 and Sheridan Park-n-Ride at 6:30 AM and carpool up to Rocky Mountain National Park (Estes Park, CO) together.

Participants from other areas can meet at the Lily Lake Trailhead outside Estes Park at 7:45 AM.  Directions to the meeting point in Estes Park will be provided to all participants.

This should be a busy weekend in RMNP as it will be Memorial Day Weekend and likely the opening of Trail Ridge Road for the season.

Details

The hike up to Twin Sisters will have great views of Longs Peak and the Tahosa Valley along the way.  We will also cross a large landslide area left from the 2013 flood.  I suspect we will have some large snowfields to cross at the higher elevations.  You might want to wear gaiters or have an extra pair of socks or two in case your feet get wet from snow going down into your boots.



Microspikes WILL LIKELY BE needed for this hike.



Feel free to contact the trip leader with any questions or concerns.
