Attempted this in the snow with my wife. Made it to 11,500 feet and turned back. Hiking was to slow and got sick of falling waist deep in the snow. Will attempt it again next year when the snow melts.

A wonderful morning hike, with spectacular views in all directions, all the way to Rocky Mt NP. A quiet and relatively unknown wildernes area, a gem.

Short climb, but was not ready for the altitude. Headache, dizzy and distorted vision.

On June 27, 2004, Matt, a fellow SP member (Mr P)and I "tackled" Medicine Bow Peak. The views from the top were great and it was the first time in my life that I was got in a crazy hail storm descending as we got closer to the parking lot. My route description of this route is very informative and full of photos if you are interested in venturing into WY's Snowy Range!

This is a pretty convenient peak to get to from Laramie, so it was nice to stay close to home for this one. It's one of the easier climbs around with great views down into Colorado and up into Wyoming. Lake Marie is well worth the visit.

Easy half-day climb (though one short, treacherous snowfield crossing). Great scenery, very similar to Uinta mountains of Utah. Did this as a tune up to Mt. Massive a few days later.

Good moderate hike. Many beautiful flowers on the way up with some enormous rock fields. Be sure to bring rain gear if hiking in early afternoon in the summer. Storms seem to come like clockwork.

tjburrRoute Climbed: Main Trail Date Climbed: September 4, 2000  Sucess!


TJ Burr and Mia Petrey climbed the mountain together completing the 7.4 mile loop. We had a late start that offered a spectacular sunset from the summit ridge. Fortunately the weather was good allowing us to descend the final 2 miles in the dark. We hadn't planned on making a descent in the dark, and it isn't recommended. The granite walls on the east side drop straight off, and the trail is meandering and rocky on the way down to Lake Marie. TJ has jogged the loop many times. Jogging the route is great fun and hard work, but you have to watch every step.
