Announcing a new Meetup for The Longmont Hiking Meetup Group!

What: Signal and South Signal Mountains, Comanche Peak Wilderness

When: Sunday, November 7,[masked]:45 AM

Where: King Soopers Grocery Store
Corner of Main and 23rd Street
Longmont, CO 80501

Directions:

Meet at the north Longmont King Soopers at 6:45am to carpool to the trailhead. We're meeting early because we get that extra hour and I may be a bit slower than usual. At 7am, we will travel from the north Longmont King Soopers, up US Highway 287 to Loveland to Hwy 34. Follow 34 west for 16 1/2 miles and turn right on Co-43 at Drake. Head towards Glen Haven and find County Rd 51B (Dunraven Glade Road) and turn right until it dead-ends at the trailhead (2.2 miles).

Prerequisites: Please hike responsibly by bringing proper gear for the event, to include the ten essentials, adequate food and water. We will hit snow, so brings traction devices/poles if you feel you need it. I am not lugging up snowshoes, but they are in the car if I change my mind....

I cannot be entirely sure how much snow is up there, but it's less than usual at this time of year. Please be sure your RSVP is correct and are on time to the meeting place. Gas prices and limited parking at the trailhead necessitate carpooling. Please be prepared to contribute gas money to drivers. A $1.00 donation is requested to cover the organizers expenses to keep this group going. Exact cash, please. smile
By signing up for this event you agree to these terms.

This is an out and back hike beginning at the Dunraven Trailhead at 7,800' to the Bulwark Ridge Trailhead (8,080') to the summits of Signal Mountain (11,262') and South Signal Mountain (11,248').
