Hi folks,

Front - Longs Peak (Class III)
Sawatch - Harvard, Yale, Columbia (Class II)

Also, what's the ultimate guidebook for Colorado Fourteeners ...

Hiking a 14er - which one, when?

Hi All,

I've been thinking of hiking up Pike's Peak "soon" but unable to commit to the plan because of some doubts (mostly regarding the wisdom of it for me). I hope to get some answers here in order to proceed, go elsewhere or something.

I am a hiker and not interested in, or knowledgeable about, technical climbing. I've been wanting to do a 14er for many years and have a fair idea of which ...

Camping Sites - Recreation.gov

I'm looking to take my family car camping this summer and just about all of the campsites are already booked through August. The remaining ones are first come first serve. Does anyone else find this pretty frustrating? I'm looking to find a place within a couple hours of Denver that will be available. Does anyone have any suggestions for go to stops that don't overflow. Appreciate any suggestions.

East side access into Gore Range

Hey all,

First post on the site - I am looking to get back into the Gore range in a few weeks. I am hoping to access the Brush Creek trailhead via Brush Creek Rd. Has anyone driven up that road this year? I know in years past it was pretty nasty, but heard that with the fire last year they graded the road, so I'm thinking it might be in better condition? Thoughts? I ...

Gores in early to mid-July

Based on what I can see from the Vail webcams, it looks like there is still a fair amount of snow in the Gore Range. Has anyone been in recently that can report on snow/ice conditions? We are wondering if we will need to pack microspikes (or more) for a trip in mid-July. Day hikes only, but planning a Mt. Powell excursion and wondering about Kneeknocker Pass and the ascent of Powell's east face.

Current Conditions Blanca, Crestone, and Sangres

I am wondering what the conditions are like in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, and especially the 14ers. Still pretty snowy? Doable in hiking shoes? 2WD parking accessible? 4WD trailheads accessible?

Class 3 Near Buena Vista, CO?

Are there any good class 3 peak scrambles/routes near Buena Vista? Most of the well-known nearby peaks (Harvard, Yale, Princeton, etc.) seem to be mostly class 1 or 2. Looking for some potentially more interesting routes to tackle.
