Hike near Estes Park (Crosier Mountain) Moderate/Challenging­

Some of us are staying in Estes Park for the weekend & we invite day trippers up to hike with us!

This is a nice trail we hiked about 3/4 way in 2012. The trail is 8 mile round-trip, but we will go at a pace that is good for the whole group & with the philosophy that it's the journey, not the destination. :-) It its our goal to make it to the top of Crosier Mountain - so we will get an early start on the day.

Please be prepared with proper hiking gear and shoes, a backpack, and plenty of water and for you and your pups. This would be a great time to outfit your dog with a puppy pack!  Milo always carries his water, bowl, bags, and treats!

    Once again, a great hike. I am glad we were able to get a little closer to the summit before the dogs called it quits. The weather could not have been nicer!

    Was a really fun way to spend the morning - fresh air, exercise, good company and entertainment watching our dogs run around, dig holes and chase chippies!

    I really like this hike a lot. Starting early is definitely key to finishing this one. The dogs get too hot to make it the whole way. Gorgeous views!

    Sorry about the link - I just updated it with one that works. To get to the trail head we will be using - from Estes Park take County Road 43/Devil's Gulch Road about 6 miles to Glen Haven. Look for the funky stables, and park in the lot of off the street. You will see a sign for Crosier Mountain. http://goo.gl/maps/i3pw7­ - Directions from KOA.

    We hope to start off around 8:30am - please be on time and bring supplies.

    **Please note - this is a VERY twisty road - so take care if you have dogs that get carsick.**

    The link for the trailhead doesn't seem to be working...

    If we are coming for the hike should we park at the KOA or meet at the trailhead?

    Thank you,

    Linda
