Snowshoeing Butler Gulch Trail at Henderson Mine

We can meet at Evergreen exit off I-70. Please park in Walmart parking lot, closest to McDonalds. We will leave at 9:30. The trail is at Henderson Mine, about 9 miles past Empire. Please dress appropriately for snow and possible wind, and bring snacks and water. The trail is a steady uphill hike with a couple of steeper areas. Pace will be moderate (well, me anyway). Distance is about 5.2 miles, out and back. We will probably not go to the end of the trail due to avalanche danger.

    Just to make sure, 5.2 miles each direction? How vital do you think poles are, left mine in Winter Park, mostly packed trail?

    Have a great time everyone! Look for upcoming postings for new events from me over the next week or so-and, again, thank you Susan for doing a great job hosting snowshoeing over the wintry months!

      This is what I do in the winter and it is more fun with others. I am hoping to do your Tuesday night Deer Creek ride once that gets going.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
