Details

This trail is low enough -- starts at 7500' and heads down into Platte Canyon -- this is unlikely to be a snowshoe in early December but we'll decide a couple of days before trip day.  Do plan on bringing spikes in case of ice. Lovely, forested trail over the ridge from Roxborough, unlikely to be busy.



We'll travel north and west of the Indian Creek Campground along Forest Service trail #800 (west side/along Bear Creek) to where it meets up with the CT Segment 1.  



Depending on ground conditions, the weather, and how we feel, we can extend our trip around a part of the Indian Creek loop (adding 4 miles) or jump on CT 1 south for a while before returning.
