Details

Join the Denver Chapter of the USD Alumni Association on our third annual fourteener hike!

This year we will climb Mt. Sherman. Mt. Sherman, located in the Mosquito Range, is 14,036 ft and considered to be one of the easiest 14ers in Colorado. The 5 mile hike will take approximately 4 hours to complete. Please come prepared with your own water, food and additional clothing for inclement weather.

We will meet at the winter trailhead at the Leavick Parking area at 7 a.m. and then carpool up to the summer trailhead in 4WD vehicles once the group is ready. Please look for the large USD banners at the meeting spot. The dirt road to the trailhead is rough and a high clearance vehicle and 4WD are recommended to reach the summer trailhead.

After the hike we will return to the Leavick Parking area for a picnic lunch hosted by the alumni chapter. Food and drinks will be provided but we encourage you to bring your own camping chair.

If you would like to carpool all the way from Denver with other hikers, carpools will be arranged leaving between 5:15 and 5:30 a.m. depending on meeting location. Please contact event coordinator, Colleen Temple at catemple@gmail.com, if you would like to carpool.
