前天和華人登山隊前往Empire小鎮爬Bill Moore Lake Trail,此次未充分準備資料,在步道最後一個岔路口(39°47'35''N105°41'15''W)轉錯方向,最後在11,410’森林中道路盡頭下撤(39°47'51''N105°41'59''W),下山後檢視地圖距Bill Moore Lake還有0.72哩(1.16公里);今天走的這一條Trail看來都是越野吉普車和ATV的天下,比較少登山客來登山健行,部分路段陡峭、石礫鬆散,下山時很容易滑倒,到此路線登山必須特別小心。

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

停車處:County Road 251與253岔路口大空地(39°46'21''N105°41'02''W),海拔9,182呎(2,799公尺)

下撤點:11,410’道路終點(39°47'51''N105°41'59''W),海拔11,410呎(3,478公尺)

登山里程:來回約8.0哩(12.8公里)

總爬升高度:約2,400呎(732公尺)

登山時間:約5小時

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

行車資訊:

由Golden沿CO-470 E匯入I-70州際公路西行,行約27.7哩後在Exit 232出口下交流道沿U.S. 40 E朝Empire / Granby前進,行約2.0哩進入Empire街區,在剛過道路左側一棟二層建物“Town Hall”,建物一樓為“Hard Rock Cafe”後右轉Main St上山,山路行約1.0哩停車於County Road 251與253岔路口大空地 (39°46'21''N105°41'02''W),此處海拔約9,182呎(2,799公尺)。

步程簡述:

09:23 抵達Conqueror Mine遺址(39°47'01''N105°40'52''W)海拔9,815(2,992公尺),距停車處約1.2哩;位在一處道路急右彎處的左側,該礦場是一處金礦礦場,鼎盛期是在19世紀中葉到末期,當年由於該礦暢建立了今日的Empire小鎮。

09:35 過了Conqueror Mine遺址不久抵一岔路(39°46'51''N105°40'42''W),右岔是主要道路,左岔是ATV玩家所謂的The Chutes,海拔9,850呎(3,002公尺),距停車處約1.4哩;我們取左岔直上。

此段The Chutes幾乎是一溝槽似小道,僅適合ATV行駛,越野吉普車也無法上來;道路狹小陡峭,成溝槽狀,大小石塊阻路難行。

09:47 抵達The Chutes最高點(39°46'55''N105°40'35''W),海拔10,120呎(3,085公尺),距停車處約1.6哩;遠眺西南方Bard Peak等山頭覆蓋厚厚的白雪。

The Chutes最高點再行百尺左右即遇右岔是剛才主要道路來接,續直行。

09:55 遇一岔路取左行(39°46'59''N105°40'34''W)。

09:57 抵達Bill Moore Lake 和Miller Creek Trailhead (39°47'07''N105°40'36''W),左岔是往Bill Moore Lake (Forest road 183.1) ,右岔往Miller Creek (Forest road 171.2);此處海拔10,170呎(3,100公尺),距停車處約1.9哩;取左行往Bill Moore Lake。

10:02抵一岔路,右直行往Mill Cr Loop,左岔往Bill Moore Lake,取左行。

10:38 抵一“T”字路(39°47'33''N105°40'38''W),左往Bill Moore Lake,右往Mill CR. Loop,取左上;此處海拔10,570呎(3,228公尺) ,距停車處約2.6哩;

10:40 右側一岔路Forest road 183.1A Bypass (39°47'33''N105°40'41''W),海拔10,600呎(3,231公尺) ,距停車處約2.65哩;

此處展望佳,南眺Mount Evans、Mount Bierstadt等高山,西北遙望James Peak等稜線;右岔路較易行,我們取左直行,左直行為主線較陡峭,且地面是鬆散的小石塊,非常難爬,但距離較短風景也較美。

11:58 回到道路制高點(39°47'52''N105°41'54''W)拍照後循原路下山。
