This is a moderate 2c II hike with 5 water crossings, 2,000 ft plus elevation gains with a total elevation change of around 4,500 ft . There is loose scree in places with several steep areas. NOT A BEGINNER HIKE !!!
We will put in at Bullpen, and hike Trail #17 approx 6 miles to camp. We set up camp and enjoy the cool water of West Clear Creek. optional side hike to the falls. In the morning we start the 1.7 mile 1800 foot climb to the top and out of the canyon. We then follow FR 214A about 2 mile to Blodget Basin Trail # 31 and follow it for 2.5 miles back to our vehicles, or swimming hole to cool off.
