Hiking Latir the Easy Way Date Climbed: Aug 27, 2017
Hiked up from Latir Lakes. Per my GPS: 2.03 miles in 1hour, 12 minutes from the trailhead located at the third Latir Lake. Beautiful day, saw several large herds of elk. Also hiked Venado and Virsylvia Peaks the same day. Note: The Latir Lakes are owned by the Rio Costilla Park and require an entrance fee of $10 for day use or $20 for camping/use per day. Access to Latir Lakes also requires a high clearance vehicle with 4WD being preferred. Beautiful area. Be off the mtn by noon. When I hiked, thunder was heard in the distance by 11AM. By noon it was over me but I was down in the trees by then.
