|The current plan for our February hike is Mayflower
Gulch near Copper Mountain Ski Resort. Lee and I will check it out
this week, but this is a trail that is almost always in great shape. We
will be heading up to Dillon the day before and we still have some room
if anyone wants to spend Tuesday night. (Yes, I know it is Valentine’s
day.) I’d plan on 1.5 drive from Denver to the trailhead (check http://www.cotrip.org/map.htm).
Mayflower Gulch: https://www.fs.usda.gov/Internet/FSE_DOCUMENTS/stelprdb5186797.pdf
Date: 15 Feb
Meet at the trailhead at 10:00. There are no “facilities” there, so stop in Silverthorne at one of the fast food joints near the I-70 exit.
The hike follows a 4WD road through forest but continues into the bowl for grand views!
Snowshoes are recommended, especially if there has been a recent storm.
If you need to reach me on Tuesday (14th) or Wednesday (15th), call my cell phone – 720-428-1676.
Please RSVP by Monday, 13th Feb, so I know to expect you.

If you don’t own snowshoes you can rent them at lots of places including REI, Sports Authority, and Christy Sports. Poles are optional, but sometimes helpful.
We will be in the “backcountry” during the winter – be prepared for adverse weather and winter driving conditions. Before heading out, check road conditions by calling “511” or http://www.cotrip.org/. Check with CAIC at https://avalanche.state.co.us/index.php.
COSAR CARD (Optional)
Purchase your Colorado Search and Rescue Card at Roxborough State Park Visitor Center (or other locations). The cost is $3.00 for one year and $12.00 for five years.
