Second Creek Trailhead is a moderate to difficult ungroomed snowshoe trail, but usually packed down due to the amount of snowshoe traffic. Staring elevation is 10,580 ending at 11,800, so quite an elevation gain. We will follow the trail for a total of 4-5 miles and then return to the hut day use area where we'll have lunch.
Optional Overnighter: Click here if you want to stay overnight in the hut and follow the instructions to make a reservation. http://www.huts.org

Carpooling: Meet at 9:00am at Wooly Mammoth, Section CC where we'll form some carpools. The parking lot is located at I-70 West, Morrison Exit 259. If you're attending the hut trip too, be sure your carpoolers are doing the same!
Lunch - bring a lunch to eat at the indoor hut day use area located on the Second Creek Trail. Also, feel free to bring a little something to share with the group - a special drink or snack.
See you there!
