Captain Mountain, in the Mt Evans Wilderness, is a small 9,869' peak with a rocky summit.  We start at Echo Lake campground, with the hard part the initial descent of 2,150' then climb 1265' on the way to the summit.  Most of the hike is in dense forest.  It is at relatively low elevation, but will still be snow covered.  Chances are we will be breaking trail.

Meet at Mooly Mammoth Park and Ride Section BB at 6:30 for a no later than 6:45 start.

We will travel up I70 to the Mt Evans Highway in Idaho Springs.  There are vault toilets at the campground.

We will make a social stop in Idaho Springs for those who would like to stop.

The roundtrip distance is 65 miles which means carpools will split the $20 cost.
