Nice quick trip up Emerald Mountain the first evening after arriving at the YMCA of the Rockies in Estes Park. A beautiful evening summit with a nice overview of Rocky Mountain National Park.

What a beautiful (if windy!) day!!! Amazing scenery, nice easy hike. The views from this little peak are jaw dropping. Surprised to find a trail all the way to the top and even more surprised no one else had been up it (we were breaking fresh tracks). With Deb.

Bushwhacked up the west slopes through the trees from Glacier Basin Campground, actually parked across the street at the shuttle bus lot as I was not a guest of the campground. Cool summit, surprisingly rocky and open!

An easy, and quick, hike with Peakbug. My back has been bothering me, so this was a good option to get out. The views from the top were great.

It was the 100th anniversary of the Colorado Mountain Club's first outing (which was to Cheeseman Park, of all things). So the CMC celebrated by climbing Emerald Mountain from the YMCA. We were on the road for half of the hike, then on the trail the rest of the way. It was windy and surprising chilly, but not so much in the trees. We had a ton of hikers on the summit. Views are magnificent from up there.

A super quick jaunt. Glacier Basin CG was closed so I had the whole run of the place to myself!
Good views from on top.

Date Climbed: Jan 1, 2010


Nabbed this one after "Thunder" & "Lightning". It was a little later in the afternoon and the mountain lion signs at the TH were giving me second thoughts, but it was right there and I couldn't resist. Although I think I was able to make quick work of this one thanks to the signs!

Hiked the South Slope from the East Portal TH. The southern exposure made for a very warm hike in the sun, which was nice.
