Details

We will start at the Echo Lake parking lot near the Mount Evans auto road. The plan is to circle the lake and then bee line through the woods to about mile marker 1, cross the road and continue directly to near mile marker 4 at Goliath peak.



We will follow the road for a mile and then do an ascending traverse across the tundra to the summit of Rogers Peak.



Rogers Peak sits at about 13,200 and provides incredible views of Mount Evans and the surrounding summits. If we are on snowshoes, which I expect for most of the way, this will be a significant hike. You should be comfortable breaking trail for some stretch.



Please bring showshoes, spikes, wind layers, balaclava and goggles. 10 essentials and your personal medical kit.



The northwest side of Mount Evans sees a lot of wind, so please be prepared. Dress for winter.



If you have any medical or other issues you want me to be aware of, please reach out.
