dunking_deutschmanNicer than expected  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 21, 2015


Took my 6 year old and my 8 year old up this peak for their first real mountain summit under their own power. It was right about at the edge of their stamina and i think they had fun despite much whining. Perfect weather day. I've hiked all over RMNP and after finally doing Deer Mountain, I say it's worth it!

A nice, easy, hike with my wife. The trail was fairly snow free and incoming weather held off until we were down.

For a flatlander such as myself, this was a perfect acclimatizing hike for Mt Yale 2 days later.

zxstarlingGreat View of Estes Park  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Mar 19, 2007


I was on my way out of the park early one morning on my way back to KS when for some reason I had the notion to stop off and get in 1 more hike. It was very worth it and had a great view of Estes Park. Listed as "strenuous" at the trail head, it is actually quite mild. It was quite snowy in March 2007 so some snowshoes would have helped but most of the snow was packed.

Bjaye16good hike to a 360 view  Sucess!
Guessing on the year...though it was in the late 80's. Loved the panoramic view at the top. Be a nice horseback ride too.

Date Climbed: Dec 30, 2007


Snowshoeing it on this trail felt like a sauna compared to the Mill's Lake hike we took the day before. I thought I was going to freeze my bum off there -40 degrees or so. Down saved my Southern Californian butt on this trip.....for sure!

The whole hike was fogged in, so we didn't get any good views, but it was a great wildflower season (because of all that moisture).
