By: Joe Petsche I am a trip leader with the CMC. This hike is cross posted from the CMC website, the climb is open to non-CMC members. Planning overnight camping Saturday night. Hike Sunday. Northwest Ridge - Class 2 hike https://www.14ers.com/route.php?route=lapl1&peak=La+Plata+Peak Map: https://trails.colorado.gov/places/na~1459811 Assembling / Camping at the La Plata Trailhead. We may also drive down and over a bridge where there are wider pull offs. General Location: https://goo.gl/maps/wTucb8dnDE3PGEFXA The road to the upper TH will need clearance and 4WD. Good 4-wheelin’ drill. A Subie would be challenged. (Count on about 30 minutes from the turn off at HWY 82 to the TH.) We will assess where to park along the way at camp the night before. Note once we cross the bridge we'll be driving through private property. No parking of cars along this section.
