Guided wildflower hike on Friday


The public is invited to join local wildflower expert, Marty Richardson, for a wildflower hike and tailgate picnic on Friday to benefit the Continental Divide Land Trust (CDLT). This 3.4 mile hike to Black Powder Pass, which starts from the top of Boreas Pass, is described as moderate-strenuous.

Richardson is a renowned local wildflower expert who teaches wildflower identification classes at CMC and is experienced at finding rare and unusual flowers.

The group will meet at 8:30 a.m. at the Boreas Pass Road railhead parking area in Breck, and from there will carpool to the summit of Boreas. The hike will last until approximately noon and will be followed by a tailgate picnic, ending about 1 p.m. Participants should bring sturdy hiking footwear, walking sticks or poles, rain jackets, hat, sunscreen, water, and dress appropriately for the weather.

Interested persons must sign up by 5 p.m. Thursday, and will be given directions and further details upon reserving. This event is free for CDLT members, and for a donation of $15/person for nonmembers. To sign up or for more info contact the Continental Divide Land Trust at or (970) 453-3875.
