CYA Hike: Mount Sniktau from Loveland Pass
21 JULY 2019
The July CYA hike is on Sunday, July 21st on the trail starting at Loveland Pass and going to Mount Sniktau, with a distance of 3.5 mi, elevation gain 1532 ft, and maximum elevation 13,240 ft. Enjoy the views — you’ll be looking out over some spectacular scenery! This whole hike is above tree line, so you’ll be able to take in miles of the front range, including famous peaks like Grays and Torreys, and the Loveland, Arapahoe Basin, and Keystone ski areas. Just a heads up: the ridge is fairly exposed, so it’s a good idea to come prepared with layers and sunscreen. On the drive back, we’ll stop in Georgetown for lunch.
