Details

This is NOT your normal Mayflower Gulch hike!!!  We will be hiking past the lower cabins that many people stop at and continue another 1.2 miles with +856' elevation gain.  This part of the hike will be STEEP!!! 



The TH is @ 10,970' and the Upper Mines are @ 12,383'.    Keep in mind we will be hiking at a high elevation the entire hike so the 5.4 miles will feel more like 10 miles!!!



We will be hiking to a beautiful alpine meadow surrounded by a gorgeous cirque of high peaks and continuing to the base of a peak.  I'm hopeful there will still be wildflowers.  There will also be a couple of stream crossings. 



As an added bonus, Ralph Shroba (a very knowledgeable geologist) has agreed to tell us all about the geology and mining!!!



There will be an optional stop at the Blue Moon Bakery in Silverthorne after the hike.
