Spraddle Creek Hike

Join Wilderness Workshop for a hike into the Spraddle Creek proposal area, a key watershed protection area in the Continental Divide Wilderness and Recreation Act recently introduced into Congress by Rep. Jared Polis. This moderate hike will take place Saturday at 8:30 a.m. and will meander through meadows, aspen and fir forests, with frequent stops to appreciate the beautiful wildlands located so close to Vail. This mid-elevation hike is four miles with moderate altitude gain of 1,200 feet. This free hike is sponsored by Alpine Bank, Aspen Snowmass Sotheby’s, Reese Henry & Company, Roaring Fork Valley Horse Council, Bristlecone Mountain Sports and Gorsuch.Registration is required at www.wildernessworkshop.org.

Our goal is to keep our beloved backcountry more or less “as is” and, where possible, to restore wildness to this nationally important landscape.
