As of July, 2014, the last six miles or so of road into the trail head were pretty rough. We made it in a mid-size sedan, but bottomed out once or twice and wound up getting a flat tire due to a pointy rock. Suggest a SUV with good tire tread is most appropriate to reach the trail head at this point in time.
Thank you for this update and corrected information. I will update the page accordingly!
Climb safely this summer!
Thanks, Sarah. Hope you get out on a Colorado adventure with Hotoven soon. Great guy!
I didn't have any problem in a small sedan in August 2014.
That's good. Apparently the FS must have gotten in and graded it between early July and August. Hope you had a fun trip!
How many miles is this trip? And about how long do you think it would take to hike this?
Actual distance to reach the summit of this mountain, like any other, depends upon your approach. To begin, you may wish to check the black Black Forks route which I posted attached to this mountain page. Please see left-hand bar on this main mtn page.
