We will be starting at the Ben Tyler Trailhead on US285 just west of Bailey.  Here’s a Google Maps link to the trailhead: 

The plan is to follow the Ben Tyler trail all the way up to the ridge and then go to one of the “knobs” on top of the ridge.  Weather permitting, and if the group is interested, we might do some exploring up there before returning down the Ben Tyler Trail to the trailhead.




This hike is limited to vaccinated CMC members only or those members with a negative PCR COVIS-19 test within three days of the trip.

This is a CMC Bobcats trip

The Bobcats’ mission is to ensure a variety of challenging CMC trips, mostly on weekdays, all year long, for our mostly 50+ constituents. We don’t have dues or elections and we invite ALL CMC members to sign up for any Bobcat trip. You can search the CMC Calendar for Bobcat trips any time by selecting “Bobcats Section” in the CMC Trip Calendar “Section" pull-down menu. We send out a monthly email to our members with all the coming month’s trips, just after those trips are activated. To join our free mailing list and become a member, select the "Bobcats Section" anytime in your Member Profile (Log-in>Members>My Membership>Member Profile)

The mileage allowance per car is 67 miles x .30 = $20.  This will be divided by the number of people in each car

There will be an optional celebratory stop after the hike for those who are interested.


Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
