Kroenke Lake (possibly Mount Yale)

Location image of event venue


Let's pack into Collegiate Peaks Wilderness for a night and camp at Kroenke Lake. We start at Denny Creek Trailhead near Buena Vista. We can see Brown's Cabin and Hartenstein Lake along the way. It is a 6.5 mile hike to the lake with a 1,500 ft elevation gain on Saturday. Same hike out with an optional ascent of Mount Yale. We would have to hike out early and watch the weather to do the 4.2 mile hike up to the Yale summit. Yale might be too ambitious. Just want to start backpacking season with a nice easy overnight in a great place. More info at:

-sleeping bag

*You are responsible for your own food.

We will meet in Boulder and Leave Saturday to be at the trailhead at about 10. If we carpool we can consolidate at the Dino Lots in Golden where cars can park overnight free of charge.
