Low clouds and snow, so visibility wasn't that great. I seemed to have gone across a ridge and hit both summits ????

MountainHikerCOwith Loveland  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 24, 1993


I climbed Loveland Mountain first and then over to Buckskin. My descent was closer to Kite Lake than where I started the hike. It was really windy that day. Sometimes I had to stop and brace myself and not move. If I kept on walking I didn't know where my foot would come down!

Date Climbed: Oct 14, 2006


The ridge was holding alot of fresh snow. A hazy white out above about 13,300ft - little wind but some fresh snow. I couldn't see more than 10 feet away on the stormy summit. I wish I could have seen the views from up top. Nevertheless, another solo success.

miztflipRoute Climbed: Northeast Slopes and Buckskin TH in November Date Climbed: August 26, 2005 and Novemer 21, 2004  Sucess!


Nice short hike. Great to leave the hordes headed for the Decalibron. Had it to myself.

In November we encountered 6-8 inches of new snow. Climbed to the summit of Loveland via the Buckskin TH which is about 1.5 miles before Kite Lake.

We did a loop out of it and climbed up the eastern slopes and down the western side. Nice views of all the people on Democrat etc. We saw no one all day on Buckskin - just how we like it. Nice mountain!

Climbed to the west summit for a ski descent. It was a very foggy day, but not too cold. We skied from the western summit down through the steepest slope to the creek. Great ski.

ColoradoScottRoute Climbed: Southeast Ridge w/ Loveland Mountain Date Climbed: June 27, 1993  Sucess!


This is anice high country tour, all abve timberline and a loop without any steps being re-traced. My dog Logan and I parked along the road near the Sweet Home Mine. From the TH, youhead WSW to intersect the east ridge of Loveland just below 13,000 feet. I encountered some snowfields on this day, so having an ice axe was nice, although trekking poles would have worked, since they were not steep. The east ridge then climbs at a steady grade up to the summit of Loveland. Strong climbers can easily do this section in less than two hours. From Loveland, turn right and hike northwest along the ridge for almost a mile to Buckskin's summit. Almost from the true summit, I was able to glassade to NE face down toward the mass of cars near Kite Lake, with Logan bouncing thru the snow as happy as a dog can be! To avoid some of the crowds at Kite Lake, and make my return trip shorter, below 12,400' I swung to the southeast to intersect the road about halfway between Kite Lake and where I had left my car.

Started at Buckskin Joe mine at around 10750' to get 3K' vertical, ascended gentle s.e. slope of Loveland, and joined ridge. Descended via n.e. slopes down to Kite Lake road. Willows were brutal in Buckskin Gulch. See trip report.
