 Meet at 8:00in Lair of The Bear Open Space Parkig lot on the west end.  Exit from c470 to Morrison Road heading west.  The park is 5.2 miles up Bear Creek Canyon. The Park is on the south side of the road.

The first mile is flat as it follows Bear Creek with a number of interesting sights and the sound of rushing water.  Then the trail leaves the valley and proceeds through dense forest navigating numerous switch backs.  We will have a snack at Panorama Point which offers fine views of the Mt Evans massif and the town of Kittredge below. 

Please bring your 10 essentials and advise a leader in advance of any medical conditions.
