Terry Ploski, (303) 748-3748,


We shall proceed at a very slow pace for only several miles or hours up Waterton Canyon, taking frequent breaks. We shall have an extended break at the turnaround point/time, before returning to the main parking lot. I expect we shall cover up to 4-5 miles RT over the course of 3-4 hours. Estimated return time to the CMC is ~1:00pm-2:00pm. Bring as many of the Ten Essentials as you possess, especially extra water and food. I recommend trekking poles for ease in traversing this trail segment.



Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
