Almagre is definitely a hike and not a "climb" with nothing more difficult than easy off-trail Class 2. If you drive most of the way up rough FR 379 to the gate closure on the north side of the peak it is an easy hike. If you start at the FR 376 trailhead on the south side of the peak it is a moderate hike but involves a little off-trail route finding through the woods. If you start in North Cheyenne Canyon Park it would make for a technically easy but very long day (tough workout). In winter conditions all three routes would be tough with vehicle access being limited.
"So I was sitting in my cubicle today, and I realized, ever since I started working, every single day of my life has been worse than the day before it. So that means that every single day that you see me, that's on the worst day of my life."
