Trek along the Colorado Trail this winter with our experienced guides. This moderately intense 4- to 5-mile snowshoe trek will let three-season hikers learn new skills that will have you hiking year-round. Meet your guides on the west side of Highway 285; next to the Kenosha Pass Campground. You'll briefly review snowshoeing techniques and learn important tips about hiking in the winter. Depending on weather; you will follow the Colorado Trail to the east or west. The eastern route will take you through wooded sections that can be a bit less windy. The trail will skirt the south side of Twin Cone Peak; with excellent views. In lighter winds; you will head west up an open ridge that offers panoramic views of South Park and the Mosquito Range. The hike will climb approximately 500 feet in elevation. You should be back to the trailhead by approximately 12:30 p.m. The hike includes hot cocoa and snacks. All necessary snowshoeing equipment is provided; although you may choose to bring your own snowshoes and crampons (subject to inspection by the guides). Participants should have some prior hiking experience. Please note this tour is weather dependent.
