Hike a 14er!
All Warriors, wives, and mature kids are invited to join us for an exciting climb of Uncompahgre Peak on Saturday July 19, 2014. We’ll be driving to Lake City, CO on Friday, July 18, and camp out that evening just below the trailhead at approximately 11,000’. You’ll enjoy one of the most scenic hikes in Colorado as we ascend 3,000’ to the summit (14,349’). Our hike will begin just before sunup and we’ll return to camp early afternoon.
Go to any Uncompahgre Peak 14er website to learn more about this climb and the preparations you’ll need to make before and during the hike.
For more information, contact Pat Ralston, 640-4125, firstname.lastname@example.org
From Lake City, turn west onto Second street. Drive 0.1 miles and turn left onto the Henson Creek road. This is the Alpine Loop Scenic Byway. Drive 5 miles to the sign for the Nellie Creek trail (#877). The sign is on the right. There are a few pull-offs along the road in this area. If you do not have a high-clearance 4WD vehicle, park on the Henson Creek road and hike up from here. Continue 4 miles up the Nellie Creek road to reach the trailhead. The road crosses a stream twice. 2.3 miles up this road there is a junction. Turn left and stay on the main road. There is a restroom and large parking area at the trailhead.
