Either in winter with tons of snow, or later in summer with none would be better.

Started around 6AM. Entire lot was filled by 6:30. Easy climb to Bierstadt. Sawtooth ridge had a little snow, but nothing to make the route technical. Evans was a little breezy. Descent was the worst part. Gully was hard to find, BUT there is a route down it. Bushwacking was horrible. Entire area was muddy from melting snow. More than ankle deep all the way back to regular trail. Back at car around 3:15PM.

Left Guanella Pass Campground around 7:30am. The road is closed for winter from the campground to the trailhead (adding about 2 miles each way). The snow was hard packed so no snowshoes necessary - we just bare booted the whole way to the summit. Didn't bring an axe or other traction. Took us 3 hours to ascend - 5.5 hours total. We had to navigate through a storm on the way down and got a little sidetracked. Lucky enough to have clear skies when we summited though!

A great climb before the storm came in and pinned us down on our way to Evans. Worth it!

Great scenic hike to the summit compounded by relatively big snow storm the night before given it's late Aug summer.

Hiked with my father and brother in-law. Nice day out. Started at 6am. Made the summit at 7:50a.m.

Good views, and a clear morning. Clouds started to build up fairly early.

Climbed it from Summit lake, across Sawtooth ridge. Didn't see anyone else until we got to the summit, where there were about 20 people who were up there and had walked the standard route.

Date Climbed: Jul 14, 2016
Standard route up - amazed at how popular and busy the trail was. Fun hike. Arrived in Denver from Bay Area at 8 PM the night before, didn't impact me as much as I feared but did feel a lack of energy. Worked well for acclimatization for additional 14ers later in the week.

psweetBeautiful, busy hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 12, 2015
My wife and I's first fourteener. Lots of people on the trail from Guanella Pass, but nothing could have been better than the beautiful, cloudless day we were able to enjoy.

We started around 6:45 (probably should have started earlier to avoid contributing to the large crowd). Made it to the summit and back in about 4.5 hours, including a decent hangout at the top to enjoy the view.
