OverviewWhat this little knob lacks in stature it makes up for in position. From its rocky, western edge you can survey most of the Mount Evans State Wildlife Area, the grand Mount Evans Ridge and to the south Shadow Mountain and Meridian Hill.
On this one its definitely low overhead, high return.
Getting ThereTake Upper Bear Creek west out of Evergreen. Go 6.5 miles to CR 480 and make a right. Continue for 3 more miles into the Mount Evans SWA. Park at the obvious trailhead where two roads come together.
At the trailhead you'll be on the northeast slope of Groundhog Flats. The easiest line is to follow the road south to a saddle and then ascend the southeast ridge/slope and curve around to the west. Follow the crest all the way to the western edge of the summit and a nice rocky overlook.
