Hike Bear Creek Trail to Jones Park on Sunday November 21st
Hi Hiking Freethinkers,
There will be a hike on Bear Creek Trail to Jones Park on Sunday November 21st. This is a relatively difficult hike with a significant elevation gain. The starting elevation is about 6600 ft and Jones park is about 8600 ft. The entire round trip is about 8 to10 miles. It is also possible for those who want to go only part way to Jones Park to return to their vehicle by themselves.
To get there from Highway 24 and 26th Street, head south on 26th Street. In about 1 1/2 miles the road turns into Bear Creek Road. Continue on Bear Creek Road. In about 1 mile, Bear Creek Road dead ends and High Drive continues. High Drive is a one way road going north (do not enter). Also, at that location Gold Camp road crosses (again) and continues up. Make a U turn and park on the east side of Bear Creek Road just south of the end of High Drive. We will leave the parking area to start the hike promptly at 9:00 AM.
Please bring enough water and snacks for the hike.
Due to the number of people on the hike, please let me know if you plan on attending the hike. If you change your mind, please let me know that also.
