Details

We go up this popular both summer and winter trail on the west side of Mt Evans Wilderness for foure miles and turn around at the Scott Gomer Creek bridge.  Most elevation gain is in the first mile but the grade is not severe.  There should be good snow because possible snow is forecast for some days preceding the trip and the snow pack is starting to build as the leader recently recently observed.  Expect nice wintry views of 14ers Bierstadt and Evans from the west.  New members are mentioned in the trip title but current members are also welcome.
