From the East Portal of the Moffat Tunnel, the trail climbs gradually, with one steep section, and ends at the lowest of Forest Lakes and a scenic lunch spot. We may climb to the upper lake depending on how the group feels. Will send out email 2 days prior to hike. Hopefully we will not need snowshoes yet!


This is a Bobcat trip: The Bobcats’ mission is to ensure a variety of challenging CMC trips for our mostly age 50+ constituents. We don’t have dues or elections and we invite all CMC members to sign up for any Bobcats trip. To join our free mailing list and become a Bobcat write or call CMC Membership Services at or (303) 279-3080.



This trip will depend on the weather. If it's too snowy or raining, we will NOT go. We will send out an email later in the week to notify everyone who signed up whether it's a No Go or not.


Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
