FentonForche2Nice gentle hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 2, 2007


Nice, gentle hike only about 45 minutes from Denver. Nice views from the top, well taken care of trail. Great choice if you don't have a lot of time but still want to summit something.

K_G_WrightFun Quickie!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Dec 25, 1990


On clear days, it has an incredible view of Mt. Evans' north and east faces and bowls. You can also see Longs to the north, and Pikes to the south. Awesome quick hike from Squaw Pass Road. I grew up in Evergreen, so I've done this one at night, all seasons, from the north and the west with everyone from a solo trip to bringing flat landers not acclimatized. The hardest part of the trail is getting up the road cut from the highway. It's a great quick hike close to Denver. It is a perfect place to test your winter skills without the risk of avalanches or getting too far from "civilization". It's perfect for a quick snow shoe with someone who isn't as "driven" as some of us, GPS practice, or some alpine bouldering at the top. Have fun!

mtnhiker13Several Times by various routes  Sucess!


Good short hike and close to home. Good one to do in the winter. Have done the mountain at least 4 times that I can remember. Will probably do it again as well.

Whew, we Colorado folk are not used to heat like we had this day. The sun-drenched summit felt like the interior of an oven. Still, always a joy to get closer to the sky.

Hiked this mountain with my wife. Loved the views from the summit. Deffinatly the easiest summit I've ever done above treeline. Love to try this again in the winter.

Fun hike with some awesome views of the IPW to the NW. I also included Papoose and Squaw. A bit of snow on the northern aspects but the trail was easy to follow as it is well traveled.

RyanSRoute Climbed: Chief Mtn Trail Date Climbed: April 2, 2005  Sucess!


We hiked up Squaw, Chief, Papoose, and Warrior from the Squaw Pass Road under beautiful conditions. The trails to Squaw and Chief were well-trodden, but snowshoes were necessary for Papoose and Warrior.

I've climbed up this four or five times, year round. Unless immediately after a snowstorm, the trail seems to be well packed and obvious to follow, once you locate the TH. My winter climbs have not needed snowshoes, but you will find some deeper drifts that you'll posthole thru near timberline.

This was my second time up Chief but my first in winter. Unfortunately, a storm rolled in and the view to the west was completely obstructed. It was incredibly cold up there 20 degrees with gusts up to 80 mph. Standing up wasn't easy. Great climb, and great solitude.
