Saddle Creek route with PT 12555, very foggy and a little rainy, so unfortunately no summit views. Climbed with Scot, Kimo and Anna.

Date Climbed: Aug 14, 2010


As we were hiking up, we passed a cowboy herding some cattle. A short while later, a rider who looked for all the world like the sheriff in a Western came riding down hard and fast and asked if we had seen anyone driving cattle. "Sure," we said, "about a quarter hour ago, back down the trail." Without another word, he galloped off in hot pursuit. On the return, we noticed that a section of fence across the trail that was all right on the way up had been flattened. Someone had gone through there in a hurry.

Oh, yeah, the hike. It was great. As others have remarked, this is a gentle but scenic hike with great views of the Platoro region. If you have the energy, you can hike up a spur about a half mile north of the summit, which would give you two 13ers in one outing.

Up via Saddle Creek trail and east ridge. Down via Tobacco Lake. Beautiful area, great for camping. I was surprised at the amount of traffic on this peak. There must have been 10-20 sign-ins per week on the summit register. Met three groups of hikers going up, on my way down.

Made the mistake of climbing this peak during hunting season not knowing that it was such a mecca for hunters. Glad I had an orange jacket along! The crux of this hike is driving the endless miles of dirt road to the trailhead. Pretty area though.

Date Climbed: Jul 20, 2009


I came up trail 720 and followed it all the way to the top of the ridge that extends east and a little bit south of Conejos. From there it was a pleasant stroll along the long ridge. Descended the normal route, but I really enjoyed the great views from the ridge as I approached the peak.

Beautiful weather and a pleasant trail took me to the top of this mountain. It was very relaxing in fact and I had the summit to myself.

I've climbed this peak at least five different times. Every year I camp at the Lake Fork Campground and hike the South San Juan Wilderness. This peak is a lot easier since the Tobacco Lake Trailhead was created. Before that you had to start from the South Fork Trailhead.

After finally finding the trailhead, this is a beautiful day-hike.

Great peak in my home range. Highest point in my county. Sad to see someone found it and posted it.

Wonderful dayhike with my favorite partner. Watch out for the "wild" cows in the meadow. Wonderful panoramic views from the summit...and because the hike is way doable you can spend lots of time contemplating them.

A day in the mountains does not get any better than this. Although an easy little day hike, the views of the South San Juan are spectacular.
