Loop route leaving from trailhead above Durango Hills subdivision and gradual climb on road to top of Baldy Mountain and the radio towers. Wonderful 360 degree views of San Juans, La Platas and Wolf Creek. We will return on the Missionary Ridge trail, past Haflin Ck trail till we meet a social trail that follows a ridge and back to TH. Expect about five hours on trail. This is a backcountry winter outing. SO! recommends that all participants educate themselves about avalanche risks, conditions, and safety and carry appropriate gear (avalanche beacon, shovel, and probe).
Limit 12. No Dogs. Carpool fee $2. 4WD preferable.
