Details

Geneva Basin (elevation 10000 ft) on the far side of Guanella Pass has several good snowshoe routes and this trip combines two of them.   One is a flat route on the floor of the basin leaving from Geneva Park Campground and the other ascends the side drainage of Bruno Gulch to a meadow and intersection of the South Park Trail.  In cooperation with the Denver Trails Committee, RMOTHG members installed blue diamonds on some of the flat route in 2018 and we shall note in passing if the Bruno Gulch route needs additional blue diamond marking this coming season.  The CMC Denver Trails Committee has (and will be) doing projects to improve the Bruno Gulch trail in 2019 and 2020.  Our CalTopo route is here:  https://caltopo.com/m/HMBH  (The RMOTHG marked route includes the orange dotted line which we shall skip on this trip - but it is a very nice trail.)
