Celebrate December and work off some of that Thanksgiving pie! 

Barr Camp is an historic log cabin in the woods with a wood-burning stove and friendly caretakers. There's coffee, hot chocolate, snacks and Barr Camp merch for sale.

Note the elevation gain of 3700 feet - it gets the blood pumping, especially the first three miles. The trail is often snowpacked and icy in its shaded spots so bring spikes/tracks and poles. We'll break for lunch at Barr Camp and then return through the historic remains of the experimental forest facilities. Depending on pace (moderate) and shuttle timing, we should be back at the cars around 4:30 p.m.

We’ll meet at the free shuttle stop in Manitou at 10 Old Man Trail, no later than 7:45 a.m.

We'll catch the 8:00 bus and hit the trail by 8:30. Old Man Trail is a right hand turn just past the Chase Bank on the right.  

This trip is primarily for Pikes Peak and Pueblo Group members.  All others will be waitlisted.
