We hike every other Friday, weather permiting, and most hikes are between 3 and 5 miles. We have fast and slow hikers and all are welcome!
September 22 2023, Abyss Lake Trail, 9:30AM start time
Our hike this week will be to the high country to hopefully see some beautiful fall colors. We will head out on the Abyss Trail at Guanella Pass, but we will *not* do the entire trail. We’ll go about 3 miles in and then turn around to make it a 6 mile round trip hike. Starting elevation is 9,500 and the elevation gain will be about 700 feet. Here is the Alltrails link, but note that this review is for the full 12 mile trail. We will only be doing 6 miles: https://www.alltrails.com/trail/us/colorado/abyss-trail-to-helms-lake. And more info on the section we will be doing: https://knownothingnomads.com/abyss-lake-trail-a-fall-color-paradise/
Please bring a lunch to eat along the trail.
Directions to the trailhead: Abyss Trailhead. We’ll meet there at 9:30.
