REMPleasant Surprise  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 28, 2013

REM

On a couple of occasions when it was stormy in the area of the peaks the late day lighting defined Kineo Mountain calling it to my attention. I would lose sight of it again when the conditions were more typical. So after a couple of those "sightings" I decided to find out what I was looking at and today I climbed it. The views exceeded my expectations.

Not much left of Winter. Trail was dry with no snow left (at least not ON the trail). There is now a pronounced trail the entire way from the saddle just west of the peak.

Seven Bridges Trail again. This time I found a faint trail that became a little more pronounced as I went on, at the base of the mountain. Took me right to the summit. Great weather, awesome hike.

Date Climbed: Sep 10, 2011
Went up Seven Bridges trail, then up the west ridge of Kineo. Beautiful views to the west from the false summit, and more beautiful views to the east from the true summit. Went down the very steep north slope of Kineo on the descent, just to be different. Jumped across the creek and hit the Bear Creek trail, then Cap'n Jacks, then the Buckhorn Cutoff trail back to GCR and the parking lot.

Approached from the east side via buck horn. Trail dog keep me on route. If you look hard enough there are rocks stacked on one another going up the ridge and there is almost a path.

Up the 7 Bridges trail with the three dogs (Molly, Buddy, Cimarron). Back the same way because snow cover might have made the east ridge slow or dangerous. Gorgeous sunshine!

It was a nice hike up to summit, just a little out of the way from Mt. Arthur, which was where I was headed.

Climbed up east ridge from the saddle off of Jones Park Trail just before it bends down towards the creek. Easy hike up a faint trail to the summit. Fun rocks southeast of the summit! Hiked down west ridge and back to the car via Seven Bridges.

My wife and I started out at the Gold Camp Rd / High Dr parking area and followed Gold Camp Rd to a turn off just before the Seven Falls Trail. Once we met up with the Seven Falls Trail, we followed this to the aspen grove, took our right, and followed a faint trail to the summit. Nice views and we had complete solitude. Came down via Jones Park Trail and Buckhorn Trail.

Great hike ! I hiked via High Dr and then Bear Creek Canyon going around north side of the mountain and then came up the west slope. Greate views in all directions. On the way back I came down the east slope (very steep, would hate to go up this way) and briefly linked up with Captain's Jack to get back to Bear Creek trail

Sarah SimonSeven Bridges Route  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Feb 24, 2008

The day was sunny and warm as we left the truck and started west along the Seven Bridges trail. As we left the trail and turned sharply to the east to ascend the (surprisingly steep) west ridge of Kineo the clouds were rolling in and the wind picked up something fierd. Scrambling on the summit boulders there were moments I thought I'd get blown clear off the side of the mountain! We took some photos, grabbed a snack to ward off bonking, admired the surrounding mountains (including Pikes Peak blanketed in a snow cloud) and got out of Dodge. The winds were just insane. Great hike, though.

Note to other winter hikers: The snow in the upper saddle between that first "hump" the hiker summits and the actual summit of Kineo was DEEP. Since most of the hike is on-trail, we didn't bother with the weight of snow shoes. In the big picture this was the correct decision. Three cheers to Deb for breaking trail/postholing for us. Hiking partners: Husband, Deb & Jon.

Beautiful weather for the solstice, so I took the dogs, Buddy and Molly, up the 7 Bridges trail to the summit. Just the short route from the parking lot; 1:50 RT.

The first warm day with the snow melted off! I finally tackled Kineo from my home in Cheyenne Cañon. Roughly 12 miles RT, up the west ridge and down the east side, roughly 3,400 feet vertical. 2:28 up, 5 min. on top, 2:06 (tired!) down.

The last sunny day before a predicted period of rain and snow, so I ran up the mountain from the Gold Camp Road trailhead with Molly the red shepherd. Hardly saw anybody. One hour and 53 minutes, including five minutes on the top.

Left the Gold Camp Road parking lot TH at 4:15 am and got to the summit at 5:24. A partly cloudy morning with temps in the 50s. Nice, quiet, and had it all to myself.
