The Burro Hike is limited to NoLo Members only. Membership is only $20/year. To join NoLo as a Member, visit nolocolorado.org and go to the MEMBERSHIP page.
The hike is limited to 30 participants. A registration form must be completed for each participant in your group.
The North London Mill site is located in a high alpine region 6.1 miles from Colorado State Route 9 at an elevation of 11,400 ft. Be prepared with appropriate footwear and clothing for high-alpine hiking and rugged terrain. Bring snacks, lunch, plenty of water, rainwear, sunscreen, insect repellent, and a hat. Check out this resource for high altitude travel: https://www.allianztravelinsurance.com/travel/planning/high-altitude-travel-tips.htm
There will be different hikes available for different levels, from easy to somewhat difficult. Groups will be formed according to participants abilities.
Even though there is a sign on County Road 12 stating that you need a four-wheel drive vehicle beyond a certain point, four-wheel drive is NOT needed to reach the North London Mill. If you were to travel on up to Mosquito Pass, you most certainly would need both high clearance and four-wheel drive. The road to the North London Mill is, however, rocky and a bit uneven in places, but not much worse than many dirt roads in the mountains. The road bed is wide and graded. Participants are welcome to carpool, if they feel comfortable doing so.
This workshop is partially funded by a grant from the South Park National Heritage Area and the Park County Historic Preservation Advisory Committee. North London Mill Preservation, Inc., a Colorado non-profit organization, needs your support to continue the work to preserve these buildings and continue these educational efforts. Please consider a tax-deductible donation.
Participants will receive an email confirmation upon submission of this form. About a week before the event, we will send another email with further instructions and reminders of what to wear and what to bring.
DATES ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE DUE TO WEATHER AND ACCESSIBILITY OF THE SITE. YOU WILL BE NOTIFIED BY EMAIL SHOULD THE NEED ARISE TO RESCHEDULE.
