Lace up those hiking boots and grab your hiking poles! To avoid the 14er crowds, CAHED will be hosting a scenic 13er hike on Friday, August 5th. This year's hike is an out and back hike to Cupid Peak at 13,117'. Cupid is flanked by two other peaks; Grizzly Peak and Mt Sniktau for adventurous hikers wanting to add a few more hours. Starting at the summit of Loveland Pass, Cupid is 3.9 miles round trip with 1,722 ft of elevation gain. The group will meet at the trailhead, parking instructions provided below.
PLEASE NOTE this hike is high altitude, alpine tundra, above tree line, and over rocky terrain. Please bring adequate footwear, be prepared for chilly weather, bring plenty of water/snacks, and go at your own pace! We anticipate the hike to take 3-4 hours but we’ll be in no hurry. CAHED will be doing another hike this fall that will be more casual/social.
LOCATION / PARKING INFO:
From I70, take the Loveland Pass exit (on the East side of the tunnel) and take the road to the summit and park in the parking lot at the top.
DATE: August 5th, 2022
