Details

The trailhead is near the Shoe Basin Mine, about 4.5 miles up CR 260.  From the trailhead, we will follow the Continental Divide Trail to Argentine Pass (13,200') which is between two 13ers - Mt Edwards and Argentine Peak.  We will follow the ridge along the Continental Divide over several bumps to the summit of Argentine Peak.  



The majority of this hike is above treeline, and a lot of it is along the ridge of the Continental Divide, so be prepared for cold and/or windy conditions.  I will send an email with updated weather conditions etc the day before the hike.




Notes

This is a CMC Bobcats trip

The Bobcats’ mission is to ensure a variety of challenging CMC trips, mostly on weekdays, all year long, for our mostly 50+ constituents. We don’t have dues or elections and we invite ALL CMC members to sign up for any Bobcat trip. You can search the CMC Calendar for Bobcat trips any time by selecting “Bobcats Section” in the CMC Trip Calendar “Section" pull-down menu. We send out a monthly email to our members with all the coming month’s trips, just after those trips are activated.

The mileage allowance per car is 130 miles x .30 = $48.  This will be divided by the number of people in each car.
