Announcing a new Meetup for THE DENVER TRAIL HEADS!

When: December 13, 2009 10:00 AM

Price: $1.00 per person

Where: (A location has not been chosen yet.)

Leave the carpool location at 10AM

Let's snowshoe at Jefferson County White Ranch Open Space Park. Beginners on up are welcome, but please realize we will not be able to wait for those that are not in basic hiking shape for an easy/moderate hike. Snowshoeing is a bit more challenging than hiking depending on the conditions. Poles help with balance, but are not necessary for this trip. Snow is unpredictable this time of the year, so this may turn into a hike if there is not enough snow. Please be prepared for either. If we don't snowshoe, Crampons/Yak Trax are strongly recommended. There are several trails we can take which offer gentle inclines with a few areas of short more challenging slopes.

Please bring cheese, crackers, baguettes, wine and other finger foods to share for lunch on the trail. We will probably snowshoe around 4-6 miles depending on the group and weather. Dressing in layers is strongly recommended. Weather conditions can change rapidly. Be prepared.
