Route Climbed: Bakerville Date Climbed: 1 Aug 2004
For 'only' a five mile climb I was impressed; a much harder day than I had planned. The route finding added a nice change. I didn't see anyone from the time I left the truck till I returned 5 hours later. The 360 view from the top is great. This route was harder than many 14ers. A compass and map should be taken.
Route Climbed: Bard Peak Trail Date Climbed: June 2, 2002
I read the mileage from the Bakerville trail head and thought we were in for a shorter day. Since we had hiked 9 miles the day before, it was a long day for Bard Peak. We were using the hike for a training hike for Long's Peak. Nice hike - I think if I did it again - I would opt for the shorter steeper trail from Bakerville.
