In the Wild Basin area of Rocky Mountain National Park, we will hike up to Finch Lake.  Views of Chiefs Head, Pagoda, Meeker and Longs Peak along the way.

The total distance will be approximately 8.5 miles with an elevation gain of 1,800 feet.  There may still be some patches of snow on the trail so you may want to consider bringing microspikes.

Because of the trailhead we are using and the time of day we will be starting, we will NOT need one of the new timed entry permits.  If you have an Annual Pass to RMNP, please be sure to bring that with you.  Hopefully we will have enough passes so we will not need to pay the entrance fee into the park.

Feel free to contact the trip leader with any questions or to get more information on the route.

Refreshment stop after the hike.



Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
