Location

Meet in Wagon Road PnR (120th Ave & IH-25) near to gas station for a 5:30 a.m. departure.  Leader will also meet other participants at Sandstone Park (South side, angled parking) in Lyons, CO around 6:15 a.m.  If you have a current RMNP pass, bring that!

Wild Basin Ranger Station is near to Allenspark, CO off of Hwy 7.  Parking at Wild Basin Ranger Station is very limited.  Leader specifies an early a.m. meet time to ensure finding a parking place and to avoid afternoon lightening strikes.

This is a moderately strenuous, on-trail day hike.  The approach to Bluebird Lake can be a little unclear and ambiguous as it involves climbing / hiking over rocks.  Broken in hiking boots, rain gear, 2 to 3 liters water, a good sun hat, sunglasses and energy producing snacks are essential.

Wilderness Trekking School is a pre-requisite for this hike.
