From Cabin Ridge TH  Sucess!

If you can handle the dusty Rampart Range Road, this is a decent getaway from south Denver. I followed the 675 trail until it intersected with 770. About 50 feet after this intersection is an old, closed trail (I never saw a sign for 676). I went down this for about 50 feet to a fairly new single track. I headed west for what felt like a few miles. At some point, I came upon a turn in the trail where there is a very faint, right hand path going up. This was pretty close to Campbell and it felt like I was near the high point, so I left the trail here and headed northwest. At first I climbed the initial boulder but soon realized it cliffs out. I had to reverse and make my way around the north side and then scrambled up to the summit. Nice day, but I'm tired!!

From Cabin Ridge Trailhead  Sucess!

This was a great little surprise of a peak! The trail was hot and dusty, but once I left the old decommissioned path, I entered a nice, peaceful world. The off-trail section of this peak involves nice route-finding and easy scampering to find the critical weakness to the saddle that carries you to the summit. I really enjoyed this little solo outing!
