    Jicarita Peak is just a hundred feet shy of being a thirteener. To reach the summit, we will hike 5.5 miles with a gain of 2600 ft. This will be an out-and-back trip, 11 miles total. Alpine flowers should be at their peak, and bighorn sheep are not an unusual sighting in this corner of the Pecos Wilderness. Driving time to the trailhead is two hours, from either Los Alamos or Santa Fe. The last 4.5 miles are on rough but passable unpaved road.

    Join me on a backpack July 4 through 7 on a section of the CDT. Which section we'll do will depend on snow conditions. My plan is to set up a car shuttle, so we can do a stretch of trail without repeats. For now, let me know if you are interested, and we'll take it from there. Expect about 12+/-2 miles or so per full day (less on the driving days), depending on elevation gain. Return on Sunday will be early in the day so that we can get ready for work on Monday.
