Location

Finch and Pear Lakes are in RMNP, accessible from the Wild Basin Ranger Station.  We climb a steep ridge, than pass through ponderosa pines and aspens.  Along the way, we will have views of Mount Meeker.  We will pass though the 1978 Ouzel Fire burn area, reaching Finch Lake at 4.3 miles.  If the snow has not been too difficult, we will continue on to Pear Lake from the northeastern shore.  Mt Copeland looms above Pear Lake with Ogalalla Peak to the West.  Pear lake received its name from Joe Mills, and early explorer, innkeeper and the brother of Enos Mills, who is considered to the the "Father of Rock Mountain National Park".

We meet at the CoorTEK lot across the street from the CMC building in Golden at 6:30am for a no later than 6:40 start.

Plan on bringing snowshoes and micro spikes, and we will check out the weather as we get closer to the hike.
