Monday, 2/18/2019, Easy II Ski Tour Loveland to Bakerville - RMOTHG - anyone with basic skiing ability is welcome! - We will be shuttling cars

This is a one-way ski tour that follows a 2% grade over a distance of 5 miles and about 600 foot descent from Loveland Valley Ski Area to Bakerville. The trail is paved, so pretty wide and smooth. Although the trail parallels I-70 it's almost entirely in the trees with the road only occasionally visible (although you will be able to hear it at times).There will probably be some snowshoe "punch" marks, along the trail at times but overall it's a pretty good experience for skiers with a few gentle downhill sections but mostly "kick and glide" terrain.

Tuesday, 2/19/2019, Harrison Plane Crash Site 8600' * from Palmer Lake Pike National Forest

This hike is in some beautiful valleys in the Pike National Forest near Palmer Lake, in southern Douglas County and northern El Paso County, in an area seldom visited by people from the Denver area.We will use start and end at the Palmer Lake Reservoir Trailhead at the town of Palmer Lake at 7200 ft elevation.  We will follow the Reservoir Trail up Monument Creek past the lower Reservoir, then we will take the Ice Cave Trail north up Ice Cave Creek, over a small pass, then down an unnamed creek to Cook Creek in Butler Canyon.  From there, the trail turns to the west up Cook Creek, then it leaves the canyon floor and goes uphill along a ridge ending at the Harrison Plane Crash Site at 8600 ft elevation.  Besides the site of the largely intact military plane crash from 1952, there are some large rock formations just north and east of the plane crash site that have some nice views.  We will then return to the trailhead using the same trails.  Most of the trail sees little direct sunlight this time of year, so you should expect to use your microspikes on most of the trail.

The Jim Creek trail head is just off of US 40. You'll see a wooden sign with trail information. The first 2.5 mi of the trail is generally packed and not very steep. The next 1.5 miles is steeper and usually does not see much traffic so we may not have an established track to follow depending on recent snowfall. This section of the trail winds through forest with some downfall obstacles and then finally opens up in some glades higher in the Jim Creek Basin. We'll decide as a group how far up the trail we want to go.

Wednesday, 2/27/2019, Potluck Meeting--Exploring the History Surrounding our Foothills

While driving to trailheads in Rocky Mountain National Park, have you ever wondered how places along the way like Loveland, Drake, Estes Park, or Big Thompson got their names and why folks settled where they did? If so, this presentation by Fort Collins trip leader, Carolyn Hammond, is for you!Annual Potluck Dinner and Gear SwapDATE: Wednesday, February 27, 2019TIME: Potluck at 6:30 p.m., Presentation at 7:30 p.m.Join the Colorado Mountain Club Fort Collins Group for a fun evening as we share our potluck dinner favorites and check out the gear swap items. Relax and hear Carolyn Hammond share what she has researched about the early history surrounding our foothills. The further back in our local history you look, the more you will find land characteristics dictated how this area was developed and what happened along the way. Enjoy historical perspectives such as in 1904 when Highway 34 to Estes Park was a very narrow, shoulderless version of what it is today. If a stagecoach encountered a wagon, the wagon had to unhitch its horses and be disassembled so the coach could pass. To do this and reassemble the wagon took the team of people a large amount of time, so imagine if the stagecoach met several wagons in a day!Come join Carolyn as she captivates you with the adventures of our past and shares this connection with the land through our local history.
