Location

Meet at the Wooly Mammoth Park-N-Ride, Section AA.  I'll be driving a charcoal gray Honda CR-V with Fort Lewis College license plates and a CMC sticker on the right rear window.

Please arrive at 7:20am so that we can arrange car pools for a prompt 7:30am departure.

Cost of carpooling is $23 per vehicle, to be divided among driver and passengers.  Please bring change.

We will stop at the Georgetown Visitor Center (Exit 228) for a comfort stop enroute to the trailhead.

To Bakerville-Loveland Trailhead:

  • Drive west on I-70 to Exit 221.
  • Take Exit 221 toward Bakerville.
  • Turn left on Stevens Gulch Road.
  • Follow Stevens Gulch Road across I-70.
  • Park in lot just south of I-70.

It's okay to send me a text, but I will probably call rather than text you back if you need a response.



Details

The Bakerville-Loveland trail is a nice wide paved bike trail that follows a gentle 2% grade for 4.8 miles from Bakerville to the Loveland Valley Ski Area.  During the winter, it is normally covered with several feet of hardpacked snow.  The plan is to snowshoe or spike to the Ski Area, where we can stop at the lodge for a warm-up and a snack or lunch.  Bring your lunch, however, in case we are not able to make it all the way to the lodge.



Click here for the route map and here for a more detailed description of the Bakerville-Loveland Trail.



Bring both microspikes and snowshoes as well as your 10 essentials.  As it may be necessary to carry your snowshoes on your pack for part of the route, bring tension straps or bungee cords that will enable you to do that.



Be prepared for a 6+ hour work out at high altitude (10,000' +) in sub-freezing temperatures.



Please let me know in advance if you have any medical issues that may affect you on this hike.
