The Ben Tyler trail, after the first 1.4 miles, enters the Lost Creek Wilderness.  The beginning elevation is 8300 feet.  There are switchback at the beginning and then the trail steadily ascends near a stream through a lovely aspen forest.  

This hike's aim is to enjoy the aspen fall colors.  We will hike at a moderate pace for about 3 hours/3.5 miles, select a beautiful/scenic lunch spot at approximately 10,000 feet elevation, and then return back to the TH.  


Please have the 10 essentials and your yellow emergency card.

Please advise the leader via email or text of any medical conditions that could affect you on this hike prior to the day of the hike.


There will be an optional post-hike stop at the Snopack Taproom on Hwy 285.  Carpools will be arranged accordingly.


Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
