Saturday Classic: Purgatory Trail to the Animas River

Saturday, November 16, 8:30 am Register by Email

Starting at the Purgatory Trailhead across the road from the ski area, a good trail switchbacks down to Purgatory Flats, and then continues down to the Cascade Wye on the Animas River. It is an out-and-back hike that goes downhill first to lunch at the river, and then climbs back up to the trailhead. If there are early snow conditions, we may stop at the Flats, or use microspikes or snowshoes to go the entire way. Carpool $4. Limit 15. Two wellbehaved dogs OK. Hunting season wear orange.
