This is a tentative trip so people can make some rough plans.

There is a way for me to know if you read all this ... . :-) :-)

1-The harder the trip the fewer details i add because i expect a slightly more advanced group of people 

2-In general we start around 6am ( not 5 or 530), so people can sleep the night before

3-It is on trails with no drop offs or exposure

4-We go about 1.5mph uphill and you must trot 3.5-4mph downhill so we can maintain a "moving" pace of 2mph which should get us back by 6pm. Taking into account for lightning and rain and a few brakes, that will be more like 8pm

5-Because it takes about 5h30 min from Denver i also plan to stay there 2 days, so we can hike the day with less chanches of lightning or rain. It makes no sense to say Le't do it SATURDAY and Sat is raining and Sunday is gorgeous. So it will take you leaving Friday at like 3pm ish ... staying in the area Sat and Sun ... and coming back Monday . OF COURSE if the weather is ok on Sat , we do the loop on Saturday and we are back on Sunday. But please do not register unless you are commited to be there both Sat and Sun

6- you have to meet us at the trailhead on Friday before 10pm. It won't help anybody if you get there at midnight and you cannot get a full night sleep. And we will sleep in out cars or a little tent next to our cars, it is in the middle of nowwhere 


So if you want to sign up for this  please email me the following. And i do respond every day or every 2 days.

1 - distance and elevation gain for the loop

2- a google map link for the East Fork Trailhead 

3- how heavy in lbs your pack will be 

4- roughly what shoes will you have 

5- a Strava link or something concrete to show you will be ready to do +25mi in 1 day

6- per the trip description , what day/time roughly do you expect to leave Denver metro and what day/time you expect to be back . 

7 - if you have any past, present or future medical training please let me know. We will ask you to help us.
