We'll hike up just past Beatty's cabin and find a campsite. Then we'll visit Pecos Falls as a day hike. We'll hike out via a different route on Sunday.

High clearance vehicles will be required for this trip. If needed I will rent an SUV and split cost with riders.

    So are we expecting cold and snow?!

    • Keith F.

      I do not expect snow. High's probably in the 60s with a low around 40 would be my guess. 30% chance of rain on Friday but little chance on the weekend.

    Prepare for snow... I spent the past 5 days/4 nights hiking from Panchuela CG to Santa Barbara CG. Woke up in Truchas Lakes with the side of my tent in my lap from the weight of heavy wet snow! Also, the elk are trumpeting! Have fun.

      I spent 4 days and 3 nights farther north at altitudes up to 12500 and the weather was gorgeous. So it's a crap shoot this time of year.
