Location

We will meet at The Fort near Morrison at 5:45am for a 6:00am departure.

To get to the Fort parking area drive south on US 285, then exit right onto CO 8 (Morrison exit). We will park a few hundred feet past the Fort restaurant. You should see my bright yellow Nissan Xterra off to the right side of the road.

It is desirable at this point to arrange car pools which will allow some hikers to stop at the Conifer Snowpack taproom after the hike, and others to more quickly return to Denver.

Details

The first part of the trail follows the Threemile Creek in its narrow, forested canyon. We will have to cross the creek numerous times. As the trail swings half way around Spearhead Mountain it gradually begins to open up into a meadow. Straight ahead we will see the gentle slopes of Mount Logan. Cross the meadow and continue on a clear path on the left (upward looking) side of the creek. The path climbs uphill through pine forest in a series of switchbacks. Higher up on the ridge the forest opens to a series of smaller clearings which offer great views of Kenosha Pass, South Park and the Front Range.

The trail makes a 90 degree turn on the upper edge of the last clearing and leads back into denser forest.

Leave the trail right at the turn and head uphill in direction of Mount Logan. We will soon leave the last trees behind us - from here it is a nice hike over gentle tundra slopes to Mount Logan's summit. We will follow our ascent route upon return.



Notes

This is a Bobcats trip. The Bobcats' mission is to ensure a variety of challenging CMC trips, especially “B Difficult” and “C” hikes and Difficult Snowshoes, for our mostly age-50+ constituents. We may sponsor other activities of interest to our members, everything from bike rides to camping. Although we have members, we don’t have dues or elections, and our trips are non-exclusive. We welcome all CMC members to sign up for any Bobcats trip regardless of age or Bobcats membership.
