Winter ascent. The best way to get this peak if you don't like crowds.

Done this route numerous times. It's so much better than hiking through the crowds on the Barr Trail. Favorite time is Spring on tele skis; coming down the bowl from Devil's Playground is a blast!

Trail was clear except for some snow patches near the road. It was a lot better than hiking Barr Trail since I didn't have hundreds of trail runners and tourists to contend with. It also has great views after you get past the treeline.

I had a really fun time on this hike, even though the wind was pretty wicked after getting up to the road crossing. I found the road super obnoxious. I think that some EF! action is warranted to get this road, ummmm, "closed"... let tourists take the cog RR and cut off the steady stream of SUVs that detracts from the experience of this mountain. I guess next time I'll try a different route. Lovely hike, though, and a great view!

Ended my vist to the ridges on the north and east side of Pikes on this trail, very well marked.

I have never done Barr's Trail, but this seems like a much better alternative.
