About the event: Join us for an early morning of alpine hiking as the first part of a three part hiking series ramping up to hike a 14er! We will hit the trail at exactly 6:00am so please plan to arrive a bit early to find parking and meet the crew. We will be hiking up Mount Flora, a 13er located near Idaho Springs.

Weather & Mount Flora: Mount Flora is a great training hike in preparation for hiking a 14er, but note that this trail is very exposed to the weather. Expect wind and be preapred for the temperature at the summit to be significantly colder than the rest of the hike. Starting early will allow us to hopefully avoid any rain and/or thunderstorms.
