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 lunch place is on an open knob with beautiful scenery all around. 



We will have a pot luck social in the parking lot when we finish the hike so bring socker mom chairs, card tables and some food to share.



 




Notes

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