From the Bear Lake Trailhead we will head down to the Glacier Gorge trailhead to connect with the "Winter Trail" up to The Loch in RMNP.  From The Loch we will go off trail to a small un-named pond that the locals in Estes Park all know as "Serendipity Pond" where we will stop for lunch.  After lunch we will continue off trail down to the Glacier Gorge Trailhead.  While we are snowshoeing off trail we will use some GPS waypoints to navigate our way so be sure to bring your compass to practice setting and following compass bearings. 

The total distance should be approximately 6 miles.

Year after year this is always one of everyone's favorite snowshoes.  It can be extremely windy at The Loch so be sure to pack warm clothing and something to break the wind. 

Refreshment stop in Estes Park after the snowshoe. 

Feel free to contact the trip leader with any questions.



Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
