Details

Enrollment in the 2019 Denver Group Backpacking School is a prerequisite for this trip. A passcode is required.



From the trailhead at N. Cottonwood Creek Trailhead, we'll hike north into Horn Fork Basin, near treeline (3.5 mi). We'll camp in the basin, then optionally, those wishing to summit Mt. Columbia will start very early to climb (3 mi rt). Early afternoon, we'll hike back toward the trailhead, but take the Kroenke Lake Trail to the lake (4.5 mi). We'll camp the night there, fishing and finishing up any Backpacking skills that need to be addressed. Sunday morning, after breakfast, we'll pack up, head out (4.1 mi) then drive back to Denver in the Labor Day weekend traffic... plan to be on the road for a while.
