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.
