Details

We will 'shoe up this popular both summer and winter trail on the west side of Mt Evans Wilderness until about noon, where we will have a bit of lunch and turn around.  Most elevation gain is in the first mile but the grade is not severe.  Expect nice wintry views of Mt.Bierstadt and Mt. Evans from the west. The risk of avalanche on this trail is completely negligible.



You need to be fully vaccinated against the SARS-Cov-2 virus to participate.




Notes

This trip is open to all CMC members, as well as guests who have signed the guest waiver.
