This is a long strenuous loop backpack from the Comanche Venable TH in the Sangre de Cristos north on the Rainbow Trail to Hermit Road to our first camp.  Then we will backpack up to Hermit Pass, then down the Rito Alto Trail to an unnamed pass and over to San Isabel Lake for our second camp.  We will then backpack over another unnamed pass and over Venable Pass to our third camp.  We will continue down the Venable Creek Trail to the TH on the last day.  Incredible views abound on every day of this trip.  Well behaved dogs on leash welcome.  This trip is primarily intended for Pikes Peak and Pueblo Group members.  All others will be waitlisted.  Nat Geo Map 138.  170m.  26/7,050’.  Register with leader.
