Mitchell Lakes via Jones Creek/Pinkerton Flagstaff Trails (9,661)
This climb through old growth forest and the ridge north of Hermosa Mountain should bring fall colors, expansive views and the opportunity to check out some of the 416 Fire burn area. After leaving vehicles at the ending trailhead on CR250N, we will depart from Lower Hermosa Horse Camp on Forest Road 576 (CR201). We will hike north on the Jones Creek Trail to the junction with the Pinkerton Flagstaff Trail where we head south to Mitchell Lakes and then down the Mitchell Lakes (4WD) Road to CR250N. Rated hard due to length. Limit 16 people. Hunting Season – Wear orange. (Since we will proceed through fresh burn area, hike to be conducted only if weather is non-threatening.)
No Dogs, Carpool $2.
