Details

Note that this trip is >5 hour drive from Denver. We'll hike between 5-6 miles depending on the group's preference. Description from https://www.gjhikes.com/2016/10/silvershield.html: "The trail begins in the valley floor where it climbs steeply at first to a bench area that runs along the cliffs above the north end of Ouray. Once on the bench the trail continues to gain elevation at moderate pace until it comes to an end at its junction with the Twin Peaks trail." Along the way, we'll identify wildflowers. About 2 miles in, we'll encounter an interesting fossil and geological feature. 



All members or guests need to sign the updated CMC trip waiver here: https://www.cmc.org/Calendar.aspx
