Details

Long Scraggy Peak will give us unobstructed views of the Lost Creek Wilderness, the Mount Evans Wilderness and Pikes Peak to the south.



From the Colorado Trail we hike North, and then Southeast on a unmarked trail to the ridge and summit. One section of easy rock scrambling to the summit. The trail is steep in places, so bring poles for stability and spikes in case there is lingering ice on north facing exposure.



There will be a optional celebratory stop at Zoka's in Pine



 



We often have a Wait List for these trips, so as a courtesy to others, if you make other plans cancel yourself in the system and let me know by text or call me on my cell 303.818.8134.



If you are on a waitlist check it frequently. The system has a glitch and no longer notifies you when you have been moved to the roster.

I will send out an email the day before the trip with predicted weather conditions and other pertinent details.



Finally, please monitor your email and text messages that morning in case the trip needs to be rescheduled due to weather.



All trip participants must be fully vaccinated. If you are starting to feel sick, cancel yourself from the trip.



Let me know in advance if you have any healthcare issues that could possibly come up during the hike.
