Description

Class A Hike.  On October 18, 1943, just before 11 PM, a B-17 Bomber on a training flight crashed near what is now the CSU Pingree Park Mountain Campus.  Eight airmen died in the crash and chunks of debris are strewn over a boulder field just below tree line. We will explore the crash site on a hike that is 5.6 miles round trip with 1217’ of elevation gain.  Email Steve at mailto:stevebergstrand73@gmail.com for meeting time and place.
