Overview

 
Northern Little Scraggy Peak & Front Range
 
 
Summit view to the south
 

Little Scraggy Peak is not as prominent as a mountain as its higher brother Long Scraggy Peak - but it is nonetheless a great destination to go hiking.

Like its brother Little Scraggy Peak is actually a long ridge with several summits, which stretches out along the western side of CR 126 - south of Buffalo Creek.

Most of the ridge is covered with pine and conifer forest - but its highest points stick out of the canopy and offer sweeping panorama views of the area.

A deep notch is separating the mountain into a Northern and Southern part.

The Southern part sports the highest point of the ridge and can easily be reached from Kelsey Campground right next to CR 126.

The Northern part is way more "scraggier" with several summits, towers and walls - the Colorado Trail is skirting the Northernmost part of Little Scraggy Peak.

Getting There

From Denver drive westwards on US 285 South (Hampden Av. within city limits) to the small town of Pine Junction.

Turn south on County Road 126, pass through Pine and Buffalo Creek.

Kelsey Campground is 17 miles down the road from Pine Junction on your right side.

Red Tape

39.32102°N / 105.27546°E is wrong

This is in the Western Hemisphere.

Try -105.27546



Also, what is the elevation of the mountain? How high is it?
