We will be hiking up to Bergen Peak in Evergreen It is a 9.4 mile hike that is moderate to strenuous. It should take about 6 hours to get to the top and back. Elevation Change: +1,895' net elevation gain (+2,079' total roundtrip elevation gain) Skill Level:Moderate-Strenuous Here is the protrails link: http://www.protrails.com/trail/644/boulder-denver-golden-fort-collins-lyons-bergen-peak Stuff to bring: Sunblock, Water, Snacks, jacket, warm clothes, layers of clothes, etc.... and micro spikes If you have any questions on clothing or equipment, please message me Directions: The GPS Coordinates for the trail-head are N39 39.279 W105 21.986 Note: if the day turns out to be warm, carrying extra water would be wise. Also, due to the wet winter, wildflowers could be overwelming, so bringing your camera would be wise! Finally, there's always a possibility that some snow or ice could exist especially at the higher locations. That being said, carrying with you "yak traks or micro spikes" for extra traction may be necessary.
