I hiked Crosier with Maria. This was my 3rd time. I had planned on starting from the Lower North Fork Trailhead, but there was one parking spot left at Garden Gate, so we took it. It started out sunny, then clouds started rolling in. We heard some distant thunder while we were on the summit. There were some brief episodes of very light rain on the way down, nothing major. Total hike time was a little under 6.5 hours.

A little cold and snowy, but overall made for a good day. Windy at the summit. Followed this up with Triangle Mountain.

A fun hike with my wife. The day was cool and windy, but new snow made for a beautiful hike. It warmed up nicely on the way down, so we decided to drive over to Triangle to get another peak in.

Passed every one on the ascent so I could have the peak to myself! Nothing to hear but wind in the lines and birdsong. Hardly a cloud in the sky - bright azure day! Slept in this morning and had cowboy breakfast at Molly B's. Ride with the top of the Jeep kinda day!

Did a quick run. The lower portion was murder on the calfs! Great day, only a couple hours and saw perhaps, 4 people all day. Running in just a T-shirt in February isn't right. :o(

Do this one quite a bit. Always a good workout with a good reward.

I took my wife and six year old son on this hike. We saw a Williamson Sapsucker on the summit. Fall is definitely the best time of year to hike.

Nice mountain to ascend when the snow is too deep early in the season.

This was my second time on Crosier. I hiked with my sister Liz, who was visiting from Idaho Falls. We started at 9:30, reached the top just before noon, and got back to the car at 2:15. This was my first hike of the season, and it was pretty tough. I guess I was a little out of shape. The weather was nice and sunny, and pretty breezy at the summit. We got back just in time, for there were some evil looking clouds rolling in.

Total assents 10. The first time was magical with the real Christmas trees covered with snow.

Great little hike to a summit with unsurpassed views of RMNP. Some snow along the trail and snowshoes were helpful in the trees. Not another sole around.

I had a good time on this hike. There were some nice wildflowers in the meadows, and great views of RMNP from the summit area.

Total ascents = 12. This is a very large and complicated mountain that offers many good montane zone hikes, on and off trail.

Hiked to the summit multiple times since 1988. This trip proved to be quite exciting as it alternated between snow squalls and nice weather punuated with blue skies followed by more wind and snow. Saw some elk further down.
