LSRV Fall Trek Sunday


Have you always wanted to travel over Buffalo Pass between Steamboat and Walden? Do you want to learn more about Howelsen Hill and the early ski industry in Steamboat? If so, then join your friends for the 22nd annual community fall trek. The trek is on Sunday, Sept. 25 and will leave the Baggs Town Hall at 8 a.m. For those from the Platte Valley wishing to join the trek, the group will be at the intersection of Wyo 70 and the county road to Hahns Peak at 8:20 a.m.

Stops will also be made at Columbine and Hahns Peak. The group will then gather near Howelsen Hill, the famous ski jumping hill in Steamboat where a guest speaker will explain the history of hill and the evolution of the ski industry in Steamboat.

Lunch will be held near Buffalo Pass summit which has an elevation of over 10,000 feet. After traversing the pass which is rough and rocky and will require high profile vehicles, the trek will travel to Walden, where a stop will be made at the Antlers Hotel and Dining area for pie and drinks. There a speaker will share the history of Walden. The trek will disperse about 4 p.m. from Walden with participants returning home from there.

Trekkers should bring their own lunch, water, chairs, and cameras and make arrangements for high profile transportation.

There is no cost for the trek and reservations are not needed, but a call to 307-383-6861 to the LSRV Education Center expressing your interest helps in planning the event.

Sponsors of the trek are the LSR Museum and the CCHEC/LSRV Education Center.
