Details

Mount Rosa tops out at timberline and, with mileage and elevation gain, is the physical equivalent of many a 14er.  We'll hike until we need snowshoes and then snowshoe to the top if time and conditions allow. Primary goal is to have a fun, safe day in the woods. We'll meet at "the Hub" parking area where Gold Camp Road and High Drive intersect, walk up Gold Camp Road, take the St. Mary's Falls trail and connect to the Mt. Rosa trail. Lunch at the top and return. The summit provides a great view of the Pikes Peak area and the Sangres to the southwest. Be prepared for winter conditions with gaiters, traction, and poles, along with the ten essentials, plenty of liquids and snowshoes. This trip is primarily for Pikes Peak and Pueblo group members, others will be placed on the wait list.  In order to ensure that all hikers are a good fit with the hike, please register with the leader, Andy Lyon, by calling 719.650.3043.
