Round tripped Harvard & Columbia via Horn Fork basin in about 8 hours. That connecting ridge is interesting.

By far, one of the prettiest 14ers to hike into or summit. The flowers are amazing and the views were tremendous. A hot day with only 4 people in the basin. The air was actually 'sweet' smelling due to the wildflowers. Amazing!

This hike starts with a pleasant hike streamside up through an old-growth forest. Treeline reveals a very large basin that stretches for a couple of miles to the real climb. The summit is mabye a third of a mile away geographically, but almost 2000 feet above. The trail is VERY easy to follow for such steep terrain as it winds left, then right as you ascend the summit ridge. A pleasant surprise at the end, the last 25 feet are on large boulders that invlove, in my opinion, a fun and easy little scramble that exceeds class 2.

Started at the lower (9,300 ft) TH. Despite the super early alpine start of 7:30 we luckily didn't have any weather aside from wind on the hike. 'Twas a bit breezy up top; I was almost blown over a couple of times. Summary-a relatively long approach for a short section on fun, easy scrambling along the summit ridge! The views from the top were amazing though-what was left of the Fall colors looked like little rivers of fire on the flanks of the surrounding peaks.

A grueling 12 hour day covering 16 miles and over 6,000 feet of elevation gain. It was all worth it though because I made it to the top of both peaks in the same day. The day started with rain and sleet, but eventually became just cloudy. Very lucky that I was able to spend all day out there without the threat of storms.



Met only 2 other hikers on Columbia, and I had Harvard all to myself. I descended into the basin northeast of Columbia and then climbed up Harvard's SE ridgeline. Left trailhead at 6:30 am (late), summited Columbia around 11:30 am, left for Harvard around noon, and summited Harvard around 3:30 pm and returned to the trailhead around 6:30 pm.



Saw a whole herd of mountain goats in Horn Fork Basin above Bear Lake. At least 30 of them (see pic).

Summited w/ sp'er ahansen54 and our father. Set up high camp at 11,600 in Horn Fork Basin. Summitted Harvard early in the morning -- foggy morning so not much for views. Then followed the long long ridge to Columbia.

Hiked Harvard, then bagged Columbia. The Harvard trail was a very nice gentle trail with a short fun scramble at the top- and of course, beautiful views!

Started up at 4:40AM under starry skies and not another person on the trail until I was well up into Horn Fork Basin. Reached the small summit at 8:10 and had it to my for 20 mins, then back down into the basin in search of the trail to Mt Columbia. My 19th 14'er and another fine Colorado morning. Sweet!!

There is excellent camping down by the creek (left side of the road) from Silver Creek TH to the parking area at the end of the road. If you find a campsight that suits you, it will serve for summits of harvard, columbia and yale. On this date, there was 4 or 5 snow crossings that didn't require gators, but we punched through a bit. Dry from 13300 to summit.

Great trip with Annaleen, Mike, and Marella. Camped Saturday on the meadow below the south ridge dropping from Bear Lake and climbed Sunday morning. Excellent trip, despite some discomfort with the altitude.
