Hike Jackson Ridge

Tuesday, October 26, 9:00 am Register by Email

This is a hike from Echo Basin (10,600ft.) along the west-most ridge of the La Plata Mountains. The Jackson Ridge (12,200ft.) lies to the south of Mt. Hesperus, with excellent views of all the western La Plata peaks and beyond Sleeping Ute into Utah. Our route 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 $7. High Clearance vehicles required for 3 miles of rocky road. Limit 12, dogs on approval only.
