Mt. Massive (a 14er) dayhike, July 13-15.

This 14er is just west of Leadville, and is the northermost of the fifteen 14ers in the Sawatch Range. The scenery is spectacular in all directions. The route we will take is rated Class 2, which means there is a trail all the way to the top without any scrambling. Cool.
We will depart Los Alamos in the afternoon on Friday 7/13 and drive 275 miles to the trailhead (~5 hours). The last 2.5 miles of the road require 4x4, but the rest is a graded county road.
We will climb Mt. Massive (14,421 ft) on Saturday. The trail is about 8 miles roundtrip with 4,000 ft of vertical gain. Depending on the time we get back to the cars, we will decide how to spend the rest of the evening and Sunday. We have several options, some of which are: driving back to Los Alamos on Saturday, spending the evening in beautiful Leadville, driving over Mosquito pass (pretty easy 4x4 road), hiking around Cottonwood pass, etc.
You must be a paid member of LA Mountaineers to participate in this trip.
