Mettign Location: CMC parking lot, 710 10th St, Golden  Please park in the parking lot east side of CMC, not in the parking lot at CMC building. Across Jackson St.

This is a caual-paced, loop snowshoe of approximately 5.5 miles in the Brainard Lake Recreation Area for RMOTHG members. The views of the surrounding Indian Peaks are stunning if the weather is clear!  We will follow snowshoe trails, that are gently rolling with some hills.  We plan to reach Brainard Lake for lunch, and then return on another snowshoe trail. 

We will be snowshoeing, with poles.  Please review your pack for 10 essentials, particularly given winter conditions. This area is often quite windy and cold.  Dress accordingly, in layers. The trailhead sits at over 10,000'. We will have an elevation gain of approximately 800'.  Remember water, lunch, snacks for the entire day.  Plan on a full day for the trip.

We plan to stop in Nederland on the way home for tea, coffee, ice cream, or all three!

The meeting place is American Mountaineering Center (CMC).  Park in lot to the east of CMC. We will leave promptly at 8:00am so arrive a bit early to arrange carpools. There are restrooms at CMC, and at the trailhead.  Please volunteer to drive if you have AWD or 4WD.

Please notify the leader in advance of the outing of any medical conditions.
