Trip 11: Uncompahgre Wilderness, Sept 4-8 (strenuous)
Gratuity for guides not included, but very much appreciated! 10% is recommended if they enhance your trip.
This five day high tundra hike includes two camps at timberline. As we venture into isolated wilderness we often view herds of elk and big horn sheep on this trip. The first day is an easy 5 mile hike (elevation gain 400 ft.) along the middle fork of the Cimarron River. The next day is where you get a workout in with a strenuous hike (elevation gain 1200 ft. and elevation loss 750 ft.) over a 12,900 ft pass into our camp in Wetterhorn Basin –views well worth the effort! The next two days are layover days to climb peaks or just relax in our favorite camp in the San Juan’s. The last day is over the 12,900 ft. pass below Coxcomb peak back into the middle fork about 9 miles (elevation gain 750 ft. and elevation loss 1600 ft.)
