Bierstadt from Guanella? A swamp? Flooded? OK?

Postby Joe_Parvis » Fri Jun 18, 2010 5:22 am

I would like to get some higher altitude running training in and I have used Bierstadt in the past (later in the year). Anyone happen to have been up there and know if the lower sections are flooded? Just curious.

(And no, I can't actually 'run' up Bierstadt, although many others better than me can. I will power hike the steep sections.)

I was up there on the 10th and, thanks to the boardwalk, Bierstadt was fine. Coming back from Evans, with no boardwalk, sucked. Also, remember that Guanella is closed from the north this year, so you have to come at it from the south.
