Colo River Lilo Hike 12th - 13th Dec

This is a great adventure for thoe interested in advancing their hiking skills. We will hike down some pretty steep gradients to the Colo River, inflate our Lilos and then travel down river to a camp site along the river, then the next day, we float down river again to an exit point. From here, we hike up (again some steep gradients) back to our starting point

Who can go?
If you have never hiked before, then this is probably not the hike for you. However, if you have done a couple of hikes, can swim and are comfortable in the water, then you are bound to have a great time.
Where is it at?
we travel by car to Mountain Lagoon on Saturday, then hike down to the Colo river, float down river, camp overnight, float down river some more, exit the river, walk back to the cars, then come home

What do I need to bring?
Usual lightweight hiking gear PLUS a Lilo to float on AND a couple of garbage bags to make your pack waterproof. If you are unsure of what a Lilo is - ask Shaggy

What do I do next?
Fill in the attached E1 form and return it to Shaggy

  • What sort of Lilo do I need and where can I get one? These are ideal and you can get them here
  • What's it look like? Like this dude....
