Details

The primitive path goes along the west side of the Prairie Mountain ridge and goes up about 350 feet and then goes mostly horizontal through meadows and aspen groves before descending about 100 ft  to a bald knob where we will have lunch. There are great views of the Gore Range peaks across the Blue River Valley.  We will stop often to take pictures. The snack place is on an open knob with beautiful scenery all around. 



We will have a pot luck social at Nancy Duplan's beautiful home close to Ute Pass after we finish the hike. Bring some food to share. We can drop any food that needs to stay cold (or hot) off at Nancy's home on the way to the trail head.  Her home is about 1 mile off highway 9 near Ute Pass road.




Notes

There are great views of the Gore Range peaks and lots of aspen color.
