Description

We're sorry, but this activity is over. The last meeting was Thursday, October 1, 2020.

Miles Rt Grade Elev. Gain High Point Terrain Drive Time
4 F 380 9766 F Short

Follow a mostly downhill trail through subalpine forest to Bierstadt Lake, then down the Bierstadt Moraine. Remains of an old logging camp, on the north side of Bierstadt Lake, are evidence of the heyday of the logging industry that built the Stanley Hotel and many of the original buildings of Estes Park.


Bring at least one liter of water, snacks, rain gear, an extra layer of clothing, sunscreen, sunglasses and hiking boots. Bring a Rocky Mountain National Park pass or money to contribute to the park entrance fee. Additionally bring money to chip in for gas for the driver.
Hike Difficulty
A = Most Difficult
B = Challenging
C = Harder
D = Hard
E = More Moderate
F = Moderate
G = Easy
H = Easiest


To meet the prerequisite for A-D hikes, you must have completed without difficulty a YMCA of the Rockies (Hikemaster-lead) hike of no more than two grades lower within two weeks before the hike. This means a C hike is the prerequisite for an A hike*; a D hike is a prerequisite for B hike; an E hike is a prerequisite for a C hike, and an F hike meets the requirements for a D hike.

Hikes graded A-D must have three guests, and hikes graded E-H must have two guests to go. This is for safety reasons. Hikes will be canceled if too few guests sign up.

A variety of circumstances may change the schedule of this hike. It is imperative that all hikers check in at the Mountain Center hiking desk (Base Camp) no later than 5 pm the day before the hike. Please bring your Y lodge room number or cabin name at that time.
