Details

This trip is in a little used area in the Poudre Canyon. It is a great place to hike in the backcounty avoiding the crowds. There is an enjoyable short scramble at the summit and views all around during the entire hike. 



-The group will start close to Eggers rest area



- We will proceed up a road for a short distance



- We will then proceed off trail to climb a ridge and follow the ridge to the west of the summit



- After that we will pass the summit and approach from the north on a rocky ridge



- Near the summit there is a class 2+ scramble then at the summit there is a very short class 3 scramble that participants are not required to do 



- From the summit the group will descend to the east to a drainage and follow this back to the trailhead



The trip will be mostly off trail which uses significantly more enegy than an on trail trip. We will be going over, under, around and through(?) bushes, trees, rocks, etc.... Please take this into account when comparing your skill level to the challenges this trip presents.  



Ride share from Fort Collins will be $7
