Join us for a fun, moderate paced evening social hike on the Joder Ranch Interim  Trail.  This is an out-and-back hike that follows a wide road for the first mile and easy trail for the second mile, whre we will look for a side trail up the hogback for views (otherwise, we turn around at Olde Stage Road).  Some will bring snacks to share during our break midway.

Saturday, 9/8/2018, Ypsilon Mountain 13,514' CCY Tifecta Trailblazers Trip

Ypsilon Mountain is a hidden gem in the Mummy Range of RMNP. We will summit Mount Chaquita (13,069')  on the way to Ypsilon (13,514') and also have the option to summit Chapin (12,454') on the way back to the cars if the group if feeling up to it. Chapin will add approximately 0.2 mi and 400' elevation gain. Mt Chapin, Chiquita and Ypsilon form the CCY Trifecta. The route is Class 2 with Talus and loose rock once we approach Mount Chaquita. The hiking is non-technical. As most of the hike is above treeline, be prepared for sun exposure and wind. Views are exceptional throughout, with western panoramas that extend from the Never Summer Range to the Medicine Bow peaks in Wyoming. Views north and east include the Desolation Peaks, Longs Peak complex and aptly named Spectacle Lakes.More information:
