Hoosier Pass Loop Trail(2009.06.13)

Hoosier Pass Loop Trail登山口位在Breckenridge南邊約9哩處的Hoosier Pass 最高點,這裡也是攀登North Star Mountain(海拔13,614 ft / 4,150 m)的登山口,其實Hoosier Pass Loop Trail就是攀登North Star Mountain的前半段。真正的Hoosier Pass Loop全程約3哩,爬升高度約700呎,全程步道寬敞、展望良好,但一路都是曝露在陽光底下,毫無遮蔭,宜做好防曬準備。

登山人員:george & BiancaThomas(Amy身懷六甲,在度假屋休息),偉強、AnneStacey、我們家人(6)一行共12人。

我們於上午9點左右抵達登山口,晴空萬里,是個登山的好日子。(太座不認為)

09:15 登山口(海拔11,539/3,517公尺)出發。此趟行程有將近一半步道是走在寬敞的舊時採礦大道上。
