Needs a location
If you have the day off work, let's get outside and ON the snow! We will head to Butler Bulch. We will do about 5 miles. I would not call this a beginner due to the steepness, but since I've been on the "active bench" for months, I might be slower.
Elevation at trailhead: 10,400'
Elevation gain: 1,200'
We will do a late lunch in Empire afterwards. Dress warm, hat, gloves, warm coat, hand warmers and appropriate pants. Please bring, water, snacks, camera, gas money for driver and your sense of adventure!
Sleep in! We will meet at Wooly Mammoth, Park N Ride Section GG at 9:00 AM. I-70, exit Morrison, Right at exit and left at light. 18540 US HWy 40. Golden, CO 80401
Take I-70 west to exit 232 toward Empire. Take Hwy 40 past Berthoud Falls; take a left on Henderson Mine Road. Just before reaching the mine entrance gate, bear to the right where there is a parking area.
So ON MY HIKES, this is my policy:
Do not change your RSVP from "YES" to "NO" hours from the event. If you change your RSVP within 24 hours of the event, I will mark you as a "no show". If you "no show" on one of my hikes, you will not get preferential attendance on the next event that you "intend" to attend.
In my event descriptions, there is a lot of information: Please read it! If then, I missed something, you cannot find it on Google, contact me. On the 14er trips, I ask that you contact me. If you do not contact me, I will change your RSVP. On high altitude, I will not hike with someone where I do not know their ability, it is not safe. Other groups, you sign legal waivers, here I ask for a phone call.
Questions? Text, email or call me.
