Tip of the day

Understand and protect your sleeping bag's temperature rating! 
Remember, these are low-end, assisted ratings. 

1) You will need an insulated sleeping pad and some clothing layers to keep comfortable down to your bag's temperature rating.

2) Learn how to properly close and cinch your bag around your body to retain heat.

3) Store your bag by hanging it  - not crammed in the stuff sack. This keeps the fill from getting compressed and losing its insulating power.



Featured Trail

Big South - Colorado

Rating: Difficult

This trail enters the Comanche Peak Wilderness a half mile from the trailhead. The trail follows the Cache la Poudre River and goes by 19 designated camp sites before intersecting the river after seven miles. There is no bridge over the river and fording the river is not always possible, particularly during spring runoff. About a half mile south of the river, a connector trail leads to Peterson Lake. The Big South Trail continues southward to join the lower end of the Corral Creek Trail and provides access to Rocky Mountain National Park.
