We found the trailhead near the yellow "chain-up" sign west of the westbound on ramp. Lost the trail a few times but overall a great hike on a perfect day in the mountains. A bull elk and his harem were hanging out above treeline, watching us ascend. From the top we could see that Denver was enveloped in clouds!

Started at Herman Gulch, hiked up the Watrous Gulch trail, and then headed up to the Woods-Parnassus saddle before heading up to the summit of Woods Mountain. Then headed back down to the saddle and hiked up the tundra covered slope of Parnassus before heading over to Bard. There was quite a bit of snow on the slopes over to Bard, but it was consolidated enough that it was pretty easy to walk on. On the descent we headed back to the saddle between Bard and Parnassus to the Bard Creek Trail. We only briefly found the trail near the boulder field before losing it, at which point we hiked up the steep slopes of the southern arm of Parnussus to a small shelf where we found the trail which we took back to the trailhead.

Very nice route. Continuous snow up the gully and the west ridge to the summit. Did it early enough that there was very minimal postholing.

Since I wasn't able to hike it from Parnassus due to high wind and cold weather, I hiked it from the opposite side with Engelmann and Robeson.

Started from Herman Gulch, wrapped around Parnassus and up the SW slopes of Bard. Followed the ridge on over Parnassus, over to Woods, over to Machebeuf, then bushwhacked back down to the Watrous Gulch/Bard Trail Intersection. Nice loop, easy terrain.

Strenuous hike from Stevens Gulch, this route will test your legs for sure, some big time postholing but overall nice day.

We had the luck of the Irish today. Okay, maybe not. I wanted Parnassus, too, but my partners had time limitations. Went up Engelmann, Robeson, and Bard only.

Freaking cold and windy up high today! One of those mixed-weather, Colorado high country days - one minute it's virtually blue-bird, the next minute you're hiking through a snow cloud. This was a pretty steep route, about 1,000 vertical feet a mile. "Boys, it just doesn't get any better than this!"

Second time, loop of Ruby Creek from Urad Mine with Scot and Brian climbing Engelmann, Bard and Parnassus. Very windy day, so we skipped the unranked Robeson to stay off the ridge and out of the wind!

With my cousin-in-law Alex ... nice walk up the tundra. The beetle kill trees down low are sad.

An anomaly! Weather was 60 degrees, sunny and calm...in January!
Hiked up the trail and climbed right up the wind blown west slopes to Parnassus and traversed to Bard. Ridge was also clear of snow.
My first trip of the decade.

Bard Creek Basin loop - Democrat, Republican, Sherman, Silver Plume, Bard, Robeson, Engleman. Started at 11,500 from the east, did the basin, back to the Bard Creek TH. Just under 14 miles, just under 5k' gain.

I climbed with Aaron and several of the "usual suspects." The views were as spectacular as you could hope for, and the route was really good, but really steep (can you say f*#@in steep!)

I was racing an early season snow storm. While I was on Bard's summit, Woods and Parnassus were swallowed by a white cloud. My escape plan was to descend into one of the large southern basins, and the storm completely missed me.

Out and back trip from neighboring Parnassus. Added on Woods Mountain for good measure. These are rather boring peaks that can be safely climbed in winter.
