Details

From East Portal, we hike west along the South Boulder Creek Trail.



We will set up camp in the vicinity of Roger's Pass Lake / Heart Lake.



The trip offers great views of James Peak and the continental divide. This season should also be excellent for wild flower viewing. 



On the 2nd day we will head out for a day hike, possibly James Peak if the weather cooperates.



On the 3rd day we'll break camp and head back down to the East Portal Trailhead.




Notes

Participants will need to have adequate fitness levels to ascend 2,000 feet with a heavy backpack, and will need to have prior backpacking experience.

Contact the trip leader with any questions.
