Mount Logan - walkup - great views
you cannot really fall down anywhere along the trail - HOWEVER - LIGHTNING is a severe threat - thunderstorms in the high mountains can be very violent and are a very scarry experience - start very early and be sure to be off the summit and heading back well before noon

Decatur Mountain - indeed nice views of Shelf Lake and of Gore Range
chicagotransplant wrote:Unfortunately Edwards, Decatur and Geneva/Santa Fe/Sullivan will all be unavailable to you the time you are here. The road to Montezuma washed out recently from heavy rains and will not be repaired for some time, probably fall at the earliest. No recreational access is being allowed, only local traffic for the residents. Due to the location of the washout, the Peru Creek road (which accesses Argentine Pass trailhead) is also inaccessible and closed.
Near Keystone perhaps Buffalo Mountain would be an option? It has a trail all the way to the summit, although the sections that go through the larger talus rocks are a little difficult to follow sometimes. The route is cairned, but has some misleading cairns that lead off trail (probably built by hikers who lost the trail).
