Moonlight Snowshoe in Falls Creek- Hidden Valley
Weather and open skies permitting, we’ll snowshoe through the Hidden Valley and its beautiful sandstone cliffs. The Valley is especially scenic under snow in the moonlight. We’ll have lots of ridge time, as we look down on the Animas Valley and across to Missionary Ridge. On a clear night you can see Mountain View Crest and the West Needles. Bring an extra warm layer of clothes, and a thermos of something hot to drink, so we can stay out for a while on the ridge top. Extra credit if you bring cookies to share.
From the Fairgrounds, take West 25th Street (Junction St.) for 2.8 miles. At the stop sign, turn right on County Road 205. Two miles from the turn (past Turtle Lake), go straight onto Falls Creek Circle. Steve’s house is the third driveway on the left. We’ll car shuttle about a half mile to the trail.
Limit 18, 2 well-mannered dogs on approval.
