Humanists Doing Good will be snowshoeing or cross country skiing the Overlook Trail on the Grand Mesa. This should be "easy" - GJ Hikes says, "The County Line Nordic Area is located on the Grand Mesa where the Mesa/Delta county line crosses Highway 65. The groomed trails, with their minor changes in elevation, are some of the easiest Nordic trails on the Grand Mesa. Of all the trails, Loop 1 and Loop 2, are the shortest and easiest." We will shoot for Loop 2 which is part of the "Overlook" trail. It is possible to go farther if you want. The trails are set for XC skiing, too, so that is an option for anyone who would rather ski than snowshoe. This is NOT the designated "Dog Loop" but it is supposed to have good views 3 Km from the start. If there is ample snow we will use snowshoes/Skis. If the snow is sparse, we will hike in boots. Prepare for cold weather in either case!
When: Sunday, January 28th at 10:00 am
Where: The parking area is past Mesa Lakes Lodge but before Grand Mesa Lodge - a little ways after the Lands End Road. Look for the parking lot on the left, 19.7 miles past the town of Mesa, 1.4 miles past Land's End Road and .7 miles past the sign for the Mesa Top Trail.
