Matthews/Winters Park


Hiking – Matthews/Winters Park

This trip is for RMOTHG members only. A second trip date to accommodate wait listers. Enjoy this short but intense high ridge-top walk with spectacular views. Because of possible snow and ice, at least carrying our microspikes are a must. Not a good trail for snowshoes due to narrowness of the trail and frequent small rock steps and scrambles.

  • Moderate
  • High Point Elevation: 6,614 ft
  • Pace: 1.8

Please arrive by 8:45 am for a prompt 9:00 start. Meet at the Stegosaurus Park N Ride Lot, which is adjacent to the TH.  The lot is located just south of I-70 Exit 259, on the east side of Hwy 93. 

Leader's cell is 203-536-4199.  If you have to cancel that morning, please text me.  Although this trail may be considered Easy in warm weather, with the potential for some snow and ice, we are calling it Moderate.
