Gore Range - Upper Slate thru to Booth


I'm looking at planning a shuttle trip this summer in the Gore Range. While perusing my topo, I got the idea of starting at the Rock Creek TH to Upper Slate Lake. Then continuing past S. America lake up and over into the Upper Piney Lake drainage. To top it off, I'd hop over to the Booth Lake drainage (via East Booth Pass), and finish at the Booth TH with a shuttle vehicle waiting. ...

Looking for snow melt, sunny spots


Headed back to my favorite area in the country the second week of April. Spring is a new time for me to visit. I'm having a terribly difficult time finding trails and campsites that are scenic but not laden with snow. Any locals with a sunny spot with some snow melt in mind? Spring breaks in the south do not exactly coincide with peak nature exploring times in the state. Looking forward to some ...

Denver area scramble?

I will be with some work colleagues in the Denver area this summer and am looking for something more then a hike but less then a cat 3 scramble if you know what I mean. We will visit Bergen Peak again this year (we hiked that last year). This time splitting into two groups; runners and walkers (need to summit this time). However, I am hoping to also find an additional trail that provides a ...

2 days in the Rocky Mountain NP in April

Hello everyone,

I will be in Denver in mid-April for a conference, and I have taken two extra days to go to the Rocky Mountain NP. I am aware that it is short in time, and that there will be snow. However, I am looking for hikking possibilities for those two days, starting from a road which is not closed because of the snow at this time of the year. I can rent snowshoes or ...

Four Pass Loop Question

Good morning, everyone.
This summer I was planning on taking a trip out to Aspen and hitting up the Four Pass Loop trail for the first time. Since this will be a 3-4 day hike, I was obviously wanting to cut down on weight. I was planning on taking my Eno Hammock instead of carrying around a one or two man tent around for 3-4 days. Then it hit me that there may not but ...

Peak 8 (12,998 ft) summit top out footage

After taking Breck's imperial lift, hike up the ridgeline to the true summit of peak 8. Super windy and cold conditions, but a nice cornice drop and sick lines await down the double black diamond rated imperial bowl. Shot some footage from the summit....

Goose Creek Loop (Snow in Late May?) Help

I'm looking to hike the goose creek loop in late May early June but i'm concerned about the snow as we will be tent camping.
This will be our first hike in the Rockies. We hike in the Smokies but snow is not generally an issue so we are not prepared for deep snow.

Is this a good first loop hike and will snow be an issue?
