Location

Carpool Meeting Spot:  We will meet at The Fort () for a 7:30AM departure.  Please arrive at 7:20am so we can form carpools.  While there are no bathroom facilities at The Fort, there are excellent facilities at the Staunton State Park TH. 

Entrance ot Staunton State Park requires a CO State Park Pass or the purchase of a day pass.  If you have a State Pass and are willing to drive, that would be great!  It your car needs to purchase a day pass, it is hoped that all car occupants will share the cost ($8).
