Accessible 14ers from I-70 early June

I'm moving back to Washington and I'm going to pass through Colorado early Jun and I'm wondering which 14ers are typically the most accessible that time of year from I-70. Most of my winter gear has been packed up since I've not used it in Ohio in 3 years. No ice axe, crampons or microspikes, etc......
Any suggestions? Or anything not a 14er that could be a good hike would be a welcome suggestion as ...

4 Days in Colorado


This summer I have 4 days to spend in south/central Colorado while I move cross-country. I drop my wife and daughter off at Denver International the morning of June 10th, then have to leave the area enroute New Orleans the 15th. The way I figure it, that give me 4 days to hit summits. I'd like to try and pick out 4 summits/day hikes that include no more than class II or light/occasional class ...

Barr Trail in late April

Hey guys. I will be in Denver the last week of April and I’m looking to do the Barr Trail to the top of Pikes, but I have a few questions/concerns.

I’m a relatively inexperienced hiker/climber, but I do have Half Dome and the Presidential Traverse in the White Mountains (Mount Washington) under my belt and am a 30 year old male in excellent physical condition. That being said, I understand that the two hikes ...

FOUND snowshoes on Flattop


Found these abandoned snowshoes on Flattop Mtn today in RMNP, on main trail from Bear Lake, at elevation 11,189', gps coord 40.31445,-105.66785. From the markings they appear to be rentals. Didn't feel like carrying them down...so hope they get back to where they need to be!

Is this the right place for info?

At the end of April I plan to be in the Leadville/Buena Vista/Salida area for 6 weeks. I plan on going for Yale, Shavano, Harvard, Belford, Missouri, Oxford.

I was hoping that there might be other climbers on this forum that might be able to help with some info on conditions - trail/TH. But I don't see too many posts here. So I was wondering if this is the right forum for me. There doesn't ...

Looking like a great year for snow!

I think it was 2011 or so the last time there was so much snow. When climbing 14ers it was into late May that you needed winter equipment.

4-6 Day of Bonding


My oldest son will graduate H.S. this year and I want a 4-6 day Back Country hike through the Mountains. One that routes through a summit or two (don't have to be 14ers) and has wildlife possibilities, places to camp along the water and maybe some fishing. Basically a place to strengthen our already strong bond before he starts the next chapter in his life..

We day hike every summer in CO or NM, ...
