TRAIL RUN: Slide Lake and Mosquito Pass
September 2 @ 7:00 am - 8:00 pm
Join us for a fun day and awesome scenery in the Colorado High Country.
The trailhead is about 3 hours away, so plan for a long day. This is a very rocky trail, some larger boulders, but no huge obstacles. Mosquito Pass has some interesting old mining structures and in August there is generally some beautiful wildflowers along the trail.
There may be a hike to Slide Lake for those who wish to make the trek.
