登高山湖泊Current Lake順沿Berthoud Pass Ditch走訪Broome Hut (2019.09.08)

Broome Hut, Colorado (10)
Broome Hut, Colorado 

Current Lake位在US 40公路往Winter Park途中公路最高點Berthoud Pass西北方的山上,有一條Berthoud Pass Ditch Road可抵達湖的下方,地圖上該稜線下有三座湖,上方一座湖面積較大,左下方另有兩座較小的湖僅是一岸之隔相連在一起,這三座小湖地圖上均無名字,但因位在Current Creek的源頭,所以暫稱為Current Lake;通往該三小湖有兩個登山口,第一登山口位在US 40公路最高點Berthoud Pass (US 40哩程243 mile)再往北下行0.3哩的道路西側Berthoud Pass Ditch Road岔路口,約在US 40哩程242.7 mile處;第二登山口位在第一登山口再往北下行1.6哩的US 40哩程241.1 mile,此處是Current Creek Trail登山口。

Broome Hut則是位於Berthoud Pass以西一英里半處的11,350英尺的陡峭山頂上,屬於Grand Huts Association所擁有和經營,原名為Second Creek Hut,是科羅拉多州最好的高海拔滑雪和徒步旅行地點之一,一年四季提供戶外活動者住宿之用,由於輕鬆的登山步道和極佳的滑雪設施為遊客提供絕佳的野外休閒娛樂機會。

通往Broome HutSecond Creek Trailhead 距離Berthoud Pass3(約在US 40哩程240 mile),小屋本身距離登山口約1.0哩,爬升約800呎。

前幾天(9/8)華人登山隊前往該處登山,本來打算先由Current Creek Trailhead沿Current Creek TrailCurrent Lake後再開車到Second Creek Trailhead沿Second Creek TrailBroome Hut,後來我發現從Current Lake下方有一條Berthoud Pass Ditch可以直通Broome Hut,只是查不到該路線的登山紀錄,為了解該路線的路況特地在上週四(9/5)前往探勘發覺可行,所以此次登山我們是採取兩點連走的O形環走,一切順利。

Current Creek Trail坡度不大,一路有不少小岔路,但只要記得沿著Current Creek右岸上行就對了,步道還算好走,而且一路幾乎穿行於森林之中,走來非常舒服。
