Details

Mt. Silverheels stands by itself, with a great view in all directions from the summit. Our route is primarily off-trail, steep sections, but without technical difficulties. Off-trail hikes can offer some route-finding challenges and can burn considerably more energy than on-trail hikes of similar length and altitude gain. Be sure you are properly conditioned for this situation.

We will be above timberline for most of the hike - be prepared with sunscreen, lots of water, extra clothing layers, possible cold windy conditions. We will plan on stopping for clothing adjustments, snacks/water as well as biobreaks as needed..

Any trip member with medical conditions that might impact the trip are asked to contact trip leader in advance to avoid discussions at the trail head.

We will follow the North Spur route from Hoosier Pass as described on 14ers.com: https://www.14ers.com/route.php?route=201201050806033&type=13ers



Notes

Starting May 2021, the Denver Member Initiatives Committee (DMIC) is pleased to offer the third annual Ascending Hikes series. It is designed for CMC members of all ages wanting to experience new types and levels of hikes as well as gain new skills..

The series also provides an opportunity to meet CMC veterans, make new friends, and explore more of Colorado's hiking trails. The AH series provides everyone a supportive way to work on their day hiking skills.

Hikes start off easy and gradually progress in length and difficulty so you are ready to tackle new challenges. We include 13r and 14er climbs just for AH Participants at the end of the season! No big commitment. You can jump in or out anytime. For questions write: cmcascendinghikes@gmail.com
