Enrollment in the 2019 Denver Group Backpacking School is a prerequisite for this trip. A passcode is required.

From the trailhead at 13S 0403417E4324946N, we will hike west on the Rich Creek Trail, gaining 1,500" altitude. We'll stop for lunch along the way, possibly do some triangulation with Buffalo Peaks do find our location on our maps. There is FISHING nearby. Try to bring LESS gear this time. I'll have a SCALE in the car for you to weigh your packs. Bear bags are required. We will return to the car either by the way we hiked in ( less than 5 miles) or continue the loop (6.8 miles).



Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
