Hike Jackson Ridge to Rush Basin

Thursday, June 20, 8:00 am Register by Email

This is a hike from Echo Basin (10,600ft.) along the west side of the La Plata Mountains. The Jackson Ridge (12,200ft.) runs to the south of Mt. Hesperus, with excellent views of all the western La Plata peaks. Our route comes from just north of Helmet Peak, and eventually drops to a high shelf of Rush Basin, with a glacial lake for those interested in a quick dip. (sandals recommended). An easy traverse takes us back below the Jackson and a final ridge walk home.
Carpool $6 Limit 12. Two well-behaved dogs on approval. High Clearance vehicles required for 3 miles of rocky road.
