Grass Pass Area ( Hike)

Elev. gain:[masked] meters
Time required: 5 - 6 hours
Directions: Take Highway 541 West from Longview to the Sentinel Campground.
Difficulty Rating: OT3
Hike Description: The pass offers great views north down Wileman valley and across to Holy Cross Mountain. The sunny south-facing aspect of this trail means that it is usually dry when many other trails in the area are still snowbound. This is not an easy hike but we will be taking breaks and time to enjoy the views. After the hike we will stop at the Longview Pub for a well deserved beverage.
