Details

Located near Fruita, CO, this area has plenty of views that will enchant those who are 'new' to the idea of hiking in winter in a desert climate. This is a loop trail and we will hike counterclockwise, Steepness on either side of the canyon for both going and return trip, poles are highly recommended. The return trip we may take an altnernate route through the wash coming out near the Kodel trails. No increase in milage, and certainly different scenery. Trail is well traveled, we will have a lunch stop up top near the "line" shack. Moderate pace at 2mph, average, pacing slower up the steeper walls. Rolling hills before coming to the line shack. 



IF there has been recent precipitation in the area with some freezing temps, microspikes may be a good item to put in your pack. Frosen puddles may be far a few between. Have not encountered in the past this concern. Layers, water, lunch, snacks. Later start at 915am for warmth and sun.
