Beginning Elevation 7750



Ending Elevation 9755



From TH, hike an old  road behind a white house at the end of the parking lot.  The road climbs through open meadows.  At mile 2.4 road splits, stay straight.  There is a line shack (cabin) that still  may exist at the end of the trail.  Views of Gore Range & Beaver Creek Ski Area.



Lunch - you might want to  bring a salad or have lettuce on  your PBJ because this area was formerly the Everkrisp Lettuce Farm in the 1920s.



When agriculturists learned they could grow lettuce year round in California, the property was sold and became a downhill ski area.  More on that during your lettuce lunch...
