Fairly streneous trail. We will go from south to north on the ridge top where we will have great views of some of the front ranges such as Glasgow, Cornwall, Banded Peak, Forgetmenot and Nihahi Ridges...and more! We will hike to the Powderface Creek trail junction where we will turn back and return the same way.
Note: Our pace will be relaxed (slow to moderate); it will not be a race. We will be stopping for great views, photos, rest breaks and the occasional head count. Also, if you cannot stay with the group please refrain from signing up.
