Estimated Hike Time: ~5 hours
For those interested in carpooling from Denver, plan to leave the 88th and Sheridan PNR (west side of Hwy 36, north end of the lot) at 8:20 a.m. If not carpooling from Denver, meet at the Beaver Meadows visitor center at 9:45 so we can caravan into the park. Please let me know in your rsvp if you'll be at Sheridan lot or at the visitor center.
Each vehicle will need a park entrance pass. The Glacier Gorge trailhead parking is smaller and might be full so if that's the case we'll park at the Bear Lake area and hike an extra .5 mile (each way) to the GG trailhead.
Bring snacks, water, extra layers, sunscreen, snowshoes/traction devices and hiking poles. Additionally, please bring cash for splitting fuel costs and park entrance fees, etc.
Be prepared for all weather conditions. By signing up for this hike you acknowledge that you are solely responsible for your own safety and will do the necessary research to understand the conditions of this hike and the gear you will require.
The APRES hike: Dinner in Estes Park to be determined by popular majority.
