Details

Follow the Meadow Creek Trail as it climbs to an intersection with the Gore Range Trail. Turn right (east) on the Gore Range Trail. A wind-sucking, 600 ft. final push brings the hiker to the summit of Eccles Pass.



The plan is to go to the Pass, NOT hike to the Peak.




Notes

There  are at least two creek crossings.  Reviews on some websites indicate mileage may vary between 10 - 12+.

This will be along day assuming there is no snow and an even longer one if there is snow.

Sonya, our LIT,  will e-mail registrants two days in advance of trip with weather information.  It is likely you will need wind gear, sunscreen, possibly insect repellent dependent on temps over two-week period in advance of trip.

Hiking boots rather than tennis shoes, please, for safety.

 

Fall colors should be good but photos on the descent rather than the ascent are encouraged if we are to reach the Pass timely.
