Carried my 11 month old son Ian to the summit in the kiddie backpack. My wife, Ian and I had a short picnic on the summit. The final twenty feet or so to the top was a minor scramble but remains non-technical if you poke around long enough. We didn't see a sole all day.
This is an excellent hike that you can squeeze in a few hours. We followed the old road w/o any problems and the trail was actually cairned. Still plenty of snow drifts, but not enough to warrant snowshoes. Great views of Pikes from the summit.
Route Climbed: Standard route from Cantabarry Dr. Date Climbed: Oct. 1, 2005
From Divide I drove 1.9 miles and took a left on Cantabarry. I drove for 1 mile to a gate and parked. Look for the trail that runs under the powerlines and goes up to the ridge on the south. One once on the ridge you reach a road to whcih you can follow to make the summit. Good colors in all the aspen trees this time. I enjoyed the views of Sentinel Point, the Carigs, and the reservior. Great day for a hike
