Hike changed to Ouzel Falls and Calypso Cascades due to snow at Blue Lake! This is a beautiful multi waterfall hike!

We will still meet at Safeway Parking lot at 6:15am to carpool out at 6:30am and get there early as this is a popular trailhead.

The trail is mostly shaded but bring plenty of water, sunscreen, snacks, etc.

Large Map of RMNP, Look for the Wild Basin Trailhead at the lower right edge of the park:http://www.protrails.com/protrails/maps/rmnp.pdf

Directions to the trailhead as listed on Protrails:

From Boulder, take Highway 36 north 14 miles to the town of Lyons. Remain on 36 to the Highway 7 intersection. Turn left onto Highway 7 towards Allenspark. Remain on Highway 7 and look for the Wild Basin Trailhead entrance on the left (approximately 37 miles from Boulder). Turn left on the dirt road to the entrance station .15 miles ahead. The Wild Basin Trailhead is located 2.3 miles from the entrance station

I am currently trying to save money but there is always the option for the group to stop at Oskar Blues on the way back for post hike lunch and beers!

How to find us:Meet at the Safeway parking lot on 28th street and Iris in front of Starbucks to carpool! I have a gold Nissan Rogue.

Hike Blue Lake

Plan on getting to the Safeway parking lot by 6:15 so we can organize and carpool. There is VERY limited parking at the trailhead so we'll need to get there early but it will be worth it! Blue Lake…
