Sunshine Peak is a fourteen thousand foot mountain peak in the U.S. state of Colorado. It is located in the San Juan Mountains in Hinsdale County approximately 9 miles south west of Lake City, and about 1 mile south of Redcloud Peak. It rises on the north side of the Lake Fork of the Gunnison River.


You are also encouraged to "register" for this trip through the services of  Look for the group "Groovy Hiking and Snowshoeing".  The event has the same name as this one. You get several advantages using the Meetup interface, including one-click addition to your electronic calendar; one-click posting to social media; seeing who else is on the trip and messaging them privately (without exchanging email addresses).




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. To join our free mailing list and become a member, select the "Bobcats Section" anytime in your Member Profile (Log-in>Members>My Membership>Member Profile).

This trip is open to all CMC members, not just Bobcat members.



Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
