Grand Junction, CO, United States
We're heading west. Come join Backpacks + Bleeders for our first Western Slope Colorado hike. This classic Grand Junction hike is for all skill levels and all ages. Severe hemophiliac Chris Bombardier will be joining us as we go over proper techniques for storing and carrying factor product, emergency preparedness on the trail, and you will even have the opportunity to practice a mock infusion on the hike. Micah Mine Trail is a 2.6 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near Grand Junction, Colorado. The elevation gain is mild, making for a fairly flat trek that's easy on your ankles. When accessing this trail in the winter, Ladder Creek is likely to be frozen and will be crossed twice during our hike. Dogs are allowed on this hike, on leash of course.
