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

Bulwark Ridge - Colorado

Rating: Difficult

The Bulwark Ridge trail climbs steeply for a miles and passes the Indian trail (#927), which is a steep connector down to the Miller Fork trail. Bulwark Ridge trail then follows the boundary of, and occasionally enters, the Comanche Peak Wilderness before meeting the Signal Mountain Trail near the summit of Signal Mountain. The views from Signal Mountain are stunning.
