  • This hike is rated a DIFFICULT hike - Use of hands for more than balance.  There are ledges.

    Join me for a hike on the Siphon Draw Trail #53 up to the Basin.  I am a slow hiker and will take lots of breaks to take in the breathtaking scenery.   We are working our way up to Flatiron next week.

    BRING:  at least 2-3 liters of water per person, ID, sturdy hiking footwear, hat, gloves, hiking poles, and energy snacks.
