    Way to go everyone! Wind is my nemesis for sure!

    We ended up doing Mt. Lincoln from Moose Creek TH. Winds were too strong (~50 mph above 13k), so we bailed on the rest of DeCaLiBron. Next time!

    I think I finally got the grasp on both routes.

    Option 1 from Kite Lake:
    Mileage 7 miles + 6 miles RT from winter closure = 13 miles
    Elevation 3,500 + 1,000 from Paris Mill closure = 4,500 ft

    Option 2 from Quartzville /Moose Creek TH:
    Mileage: 11 miles
    Elevation: 5,000 vertical

    Without Democrat, 2nd option is just 8 miles and 3,400 vertical. So it really depends who wants to do how many 14ers. I'd say, without Democrat, it makes total sense to go from Quartzville/Moose creek. With all 4 peaks, Kite Lake seems to be a slightly easier choice.

    Was thinking of doing Bross to Cameron to Lincoln from the Moose Creek TH. Still considering my options.

      Meet us in the morning and we can discuss the route. I am open to Quartzville side, but not too keen on reclimbing Cameron on the way from Democrat.

    Hi! I just now joined the meetup, but I'm trying to find a last minute hike for tomorrow.... this one sounds like a nice, close option! Is there room for one more here?

    March 1, 2013

    • Natalie M

      Sure! It is shaping up to be all girls hike. Just meet us at the Fort in the morning.

      March 1, 2013

    I'm tentative too, need to get the ok from my doctor (foot injury). I'd love to do this if he's ok with it.
