Hike McMillan Peak (12,804 ft.)

Saturday, July 10, 7:30 am Register by Email

This is an annual high-altitude loop hike beginning above and east of Red Mtn. Pass. It continues into lovely (maybe marshy) US Basin, climbs to a ridge and culminates with lunch atop the mountain (a flat grassy area with space for all.) Views are spectacular and wildflowers are usually abundant- great rewards for the uphill climb. Descent will be by a more direct and steeper route, mostly through meadows. Poles helpful.
Limit 12. 4wd helpful. No dogs. Carpool $9.
