We did this as a "training" hike for Longs the next week. I'm not sure if it worked, but 2 out of 3 of us made it up Longs.

My first hike ever in Colorado. The one that started it all. What would life have been like if not for this?

Very fun hike because my whole family went with me! The elevation can be a bit strenuous for us low-landers, but it's a great workout! Beautiful views of Longs/ The Diamond (wish I was up there), Estes Park, and Lumpy Ridge.

I've Climbed up this, as I recall someone saying once, an extinct volcano, many times. It's a good alternative to Longs peak, Chasam lake and Lily Lake with little people traffic. The path is fairly straight up with little switchbacks. A nice piece for a short day outing.

Gorgeous hike in winter. Slow going straight up Estes Cone instead of switchbacks. Beautiful winter views of Longs & rest of RMNP.

Nice little after work hike...although the trail thins out at times, so just beware.

Good walk in the woods. Short scramble and views make it worth it. 2:50 car-to-car and I took my time while hiking and on the top.



Then went over to Lily Mtn and did more of the same. Very similar, but shorter. Then even more of the same as I cruised up to the W Ridge of 2nd Flatiron in Bolder on the way back to DIA. Good day.

My fourth or fifth time up, but my nine-year-old son summited with me this time along with a couple of teens who had never climbed a mountain. Photos are available in "Climbing Estes Cone."

Had a beautiful day with great views on top. The snow was for the most part gone except in places along the trail where it was banked.



Two weeks later, I was back up there in a snowstorm with several inches of snow and zero view from the top.

The last .8 miles was a great cardio workout... & it was well worth it! There were some awesome close up views of Longs Peak from the summit!

Fun and rewarding short workout. The trail is snow free. With binos I could see a lone climber descending the Loft route on Longs.

I climbed the cone with my wild brother Alex to ring in the new year with style. The hike began as a fun family outing through the snow, but our parents weren't up for the quick, steep scramble to the summit from Storm Pass. Nonetheless, the hike through the woods and past Eugenia Mine was a beautiful, peaceful hike that made for a great afternoon.

This climb was a great way to break in the new year! I summited with my wild man brother Dylan, and quickly went back down to avoid being blown off to the slopes of Longs Peak! It was also nice for the trail was packed well, and easy to follow because of other hikers tracks. Also, scrambling at the top was a blast, and so was the amazing view.
