texasshepsTough, tough trek  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 14, 2013
Larry and I summited Boundary Peak via the Queen Mine route. The 6.2 mile approach on Queen Mine Road was slow but passable for most any vehicle. Hike to the saddle was on an easy-to-follow path and quite pleasant. From there it's tough sledding. The path was still identifiable on the submountain but we lost it for the final summit push and blazed our way. There is definitely a path (we found it on the way down) marked by cairns but it's hard to follow. Be on the lookout!

7 on the mountain on the day, all highpointers. We were 6 hours to the summit, 10 minutes at the summit, 4:50 down. Weather was ideal. #29 for me, #9 for Larry.

State HP #28! Wow, i feel like that was the most desolate peak I've hiked to date. We hiked the main Trail Canyon route, even though there was really no trail the whole time. The dirt road into trail canyon was in terrible shape, and if we didn't have an SUV, we would not have made it 14 miles into the trail head. Once we got to the saddle, the hike up the scree slope up toward the false summits was tough. And we boulder hopped in the upper sections too! Thankfully, i was wearing my go pro cam, and i have some fun videos from this section. We only saw 1 other person the whole day, and they were obviously state high pointing too. The weather was great though, and temps at the summit about 55. All in all, a rough and wild day, but of course, we were successful!

So, I got lost out of the forest and ended up going straight up the bowl instead of the saddle. My hiking partners went up the saddle. When we compared trails it seemed like mine was easier, albeit steeper. The scree seemed to be a little more stable and you slipped less. So we returned through the bowl and "skied" down the scree. All in all, a rough trail but fun.

Climbed via Queen Mine with 2 others. I stopped at the saddle (wasn't feeling well), and they summited. Perfect weather. Road to Queen Mine was passable in a passenger car until about a mile before Queen Mine. We camped on the side of the road. Total RT distance for the summitters was 6.12 miles, and elevation gain was 4770 ft up - 136 ft down = 4634 ft net (all according to GPS).

marilouDrive Up Seem Scarier Than The Hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 23, 2013


Managed to summit and descend safely despite having AMS due to the altitude. Started from the Kennedy Saddle via the Queen Mine trail. That extra drive up is not for the faint of heart. A high-clearance vehicle or 4WD is definitely recommended due to the deep potholes that will rock your car towards the cliff. HP#27

Date Climbed: Jul 13, 2013


We started at the Trail Canyon TH, but near the end of the meadow, we turned left and went straight up to a rocky east-west ridge line that we followed up to the summit of Boundary. We then took the traverse over to Montgomery and got into some sketchy terrain (very narrow, exposed ledges at one point) by taking the "wrong" way around some rocky obstacles. I suspect the "normal" route up to the Trail Canyon saddle and then up to Boundary might have been better.

Buddy and I overnighted at Queen Mine and were on the trail at 05:10. Followed a good track from Everytrail, which came in handy as general bearing through the scree and rock. Warm weather and very little snow - no special gear required.

Perfect climb for Memorial Day weekend. Snow was melted out enough so as not to need any special gear, though getting around the gendarme just before the summit was a bit tricky with icy snow bordering it on both sides (I'm sure it's simple without the snow). Beautiful day and fun hike!

I camped with two friends of mine who were to attempt to summit with me, but by the time we hit 10,500' they were in serious distress from altitude and needed to head back to camp. I summited alone, the trip was very hard in the soft scree that sapped my strength on every step but it was fantastic! Expected rain so I did not spend the extra time to go to Montgomery Peak and I regret that in hindsight.

Really enjoyed the hike! Only saw a couple other hikers. Woken up by wild horses in the middle of the night. Very cool. Climbed with mebo1126.

7.5h hike, just follow the trail and you'll be fine, via Trail Canyon Route which I'd recommend a 2WD SUV. The hard part is to gain the ridge and once you did that, it's 1.5h to the summit for me.

Nice work! I am heading there in late December. How much snow was on the ground when you went? Any idea where to find the most recent condition reports or road closures?

Hey man, is the queen mine trail drivable with a 2WD SUV? (only to the 2WD trailhead), I'll be there on Oct 26th, thanks!
