Bergen Peak Trail at Elk Meadow Open Space Park is approximately 9.4 miles roundtrip, with elevation gain around 1730 ft. There are a few steep sections that we will probably walk to save our legs and lungs, but aside from the trail is great! The trail, shaded by huge Ponderosa Pines, offers views of the town below, Denver in the distance, Aspen tree stands, cool and lush ground coverage and the towering Bergen Peak. The climb is long and uphill with switchbacks taking you to the top of Bergen Peak if we want to. Let's meet at the parking lot around 6:45 am and carpool to Evergreen.
There are great places in downtown Evergreen to grab a bite to eat afterwards if people are interested!
