You've done a great job! Don't worry about his vote because you have the information to get someone to the summit and a skyline photo is not important for what this website is intended to do. Good job and keep up the good work! Good climbing to you!
Thanks for your vote! I checked out your new Mahantango Mountain as well... nicely done!
Good an informative page. Excellent since it's your first one ;-)
Real nice with plenty of good information.
Thanks for the vote and the suggestion. I decided to go ahead and add some misc info to the Misc Info section :-)
It's very nice to see the research involved in finding an actual trail to the top. The only thing I knew about was the road, and that seems so boring for a hike. Thanks for the information about this mountain! Good job!
Thanks, dude! You're the best!
Thanks for your vote!
See my summit log entry.
Thank you for the vote!
Nice job documenting this peak. Good photos.
Thanks again, Larry.
Very nice page.
Thanks, Ryan. I had been wondering for quite some time as well, and finally made the time to explore Almagre this summer.
Great job! One more excellent page for one of the "smaller" mountains below Pikes Peak. Without your page I would not have had the first clue how to get to the top with my son. That is what summitpost is all about.
I thought I'd voted on this one a long time ago. Great page! It inspired me to climb up from the back side via FR 376. That and seeing it from my yard every day!
Is there a trail just N of N Cheyenne Creek that parallels the creek and intersects Rt 701?
I have a Pikes Peak Atlas Orman Map from 1976 that indicates a trail paralleling N Cheyenne Creek going east/west, going to Smokey City Mine and then continues to 379A, a road that appears to be above Stratton Resevoir and which goes to Almagre Summit.
I would like to come up 622 from Gold Camp Rd/High Dr parking lot, then to 668 to 701, head N on 701, go just past the creek, then on trail to Smokey City and Almagre.
In the alternative, it appears that this unmarked trail heads NW just W of Nelson Camp, splitting off from 668 in a NW direction, more or less paralelling N Cheyenne Creek, crossing 701 and going to Smokey City Mine, etc.
If this trail still exists and is hikeable then it seems to be a lot shorter route and more doable than 622-668-701-379-379A to the summit.
Would like to make the RT during the same day.
Please advise. Thank you.
