Jenny from the Raw Meetup is organizing a hike up Mt. Bierstadt. If you have been wanting to hike a 14er, this is the perfect opportunity; Jenny has been hiking 14er all summer and knows her way around a mountain.
Also, check the calendar for the next rawluck(after the hike): Sat Sept. 19, Boulder Public Library, 5:30pm
Here are the details:
Due to the total bliss-enjoyment from the past 14er adventure, we’re planning another one this weekend. We’ll be hiking up Mt. Bierstadt.
When: Saturday, Sept. 19th. Meet at Whole Foods parking lot (Pearl & 28th St)
Time: 6:00-6:30 am (it takes about 2 hours to get to the trailhead)
Bring: Water, snack, warm clothes (be prepared for cold and wet and sun!). Wear sturdy footwear.
The route is 7 miles roundtrip with 2,850 ft. elevation gain. Here are more details for the hike: http://www.14ers.com./routemain.php?route=bier1&peak=Mt.+Bierstadt. Be prepared to spend the whole day – we should get back into town around 4-5 pm, just in time for the rawluck!!
RSVP required! I need to know who’s coming so I’ll know who to wait for at Whole Foods. Jenny -[masked]-2879. [address removed]
Side note: Due to road condition closing, we’ll be making our way there through the south (Grant to Guenella Pass Rd.) off 285. It is approx. 2 hour drive-time from Boulder to the trailhead.
