Don’t forget to bring your Ten Quintessentials.

Wear layers of clothing appropriate for a Colorado winter snowshoe. 

If you have micro spikes or yaktraxs, please bring them as they may be appropriate for parts of the trail.

Be sure to bring a warm hat and balaclava, gloves (good) or mittens (better), and sunglasses. Goggles can also be useful.

Bring 1 ½ to 2 liters of water (with protection from freezing), snacks/food, your personal medical kit. Optional: a thermos with a warm beverage.

Entrance into the Park.

One-day pass per vehicle is $20. If you have a national park pass, please bring it.

Car Pooling.

For CMC Denver, the formula to share the driving costs: $0.30/mile divided by number of persons in the car.  From Golden Parking lot to the trail head is approximately 130 mi round trip x $.30 = $39.00/number in car  plus $20/ number in car for park enterance.
