  • Mileage: 6.4 mi

  • High Point Elevation: 9,423 ft
  • Pace: steady

We will meet at the Blodgett TH at 10:00, leaving time to make the summit before the air show starts.

This a steep, loose, and overall crappy trail to a peak overlooking the Air Force Academy. Pace will be steady and somewhat quick as to be sure to make the summit on time.  We'll be on top for a while, so bring extra layers and possibly a chair. A  camera with a good zoom lens would be helpful as well.
