A little more info. (See orig email for more). More info and packing list to follow…..
NEW – MEET AT LINCOLN PARK AND RIDE AT 6:00 FOR A 6:15 SHARP DEPARTURE. Breakfast at MacD’s is optional. Healthy Breakfast is recommend.
It’s about a 2 1/2 hours drive up to the head trail of Upper Cataract Lake. Silverthorne exit, down Hwy 9. Next exit to the trail head is by Green Mountain Reservoir.
About a 6 mile hike, 3 1/2 to 4 1/2 hours depending on if we stop at Surprise Lake and have lunch. It’s not going to be a race
Like getting ready for the 14er hike, start during water and eating bananas now.
