Location

We will be following the Spruce Creek Trail south of Breckenridge for 5 miles.. There is an elevation gain of 670’ from 10,380' to 11,050’.  This is a steady upward snowshoe adventure through an Engelmann spruce forest at a casual pace.  Weather and snow conditions will arrive in an email Tuesday afternoon prior to the trip.  Snowshoes are advised, poles are required.

When Barb and I scouted this trail 2 weeks ago, we could go no further than the Wheeler Traill junction.  If the trail is open  we will snowshoe to the upper end of Spruce Creek Road.

Meet at 7:50 AM, Wooly Mammoth Park&Ride (Exit 259) off I70 West. Please meet at Row AA.

Directions will be given to drivers at Wooly Mammoth Parking lot.

In addition to your lunch and snacks, please bring the ten essentials including weather appropriate clothing and an emphasis on extra water and personal first aid kit. 

Plan on a full day. There will be no after stop
