Great Spring Summit  Sucess!

My wife and I wanted a nice, low, snow-free hike and settled on Carpenter in Roxborough. Great views of the south Denver metro area. Really easy and fun eight miler if you do the whole loop.

Carpenter Peak Trail  Sucess!

A great hike with my wife. We summited via the Carpenter Peak Trail and returned via the Powerline and Elk Valley Trails. A beautiful fall day with nice fall colors.

climbed in spring 2007  Sucess!

Another nice conditioning hike for Denver locals that I've done several times. Especially good for early season, in spite of the possibility of mud.

Carpenter Peak Trail  Sucess!

Hiked this numerous times. There is a summit that the trail bypasses that actually is 7,205 feet which is higher than the named summit. Probably only for diehards who wish to hit the actually highpoint. It has scrub oak all over it and the view isn't as good as the peak itself.

Carpenter Peak Trail  Sucess!

Warm April temperatures (nearly 60 degress F) and a September-blue sky combined to make this one wonderful outing. Good friends for hiking partners, warm sunshined, wide-open views. The trail was insanely muddy, but that only added to the fun. Hiking partners: Jana & Donna.

not so slushy  Sucess!

I had to come back and face Powerline again. This time the trail was much more manageable and it was an easy day.

slushy  Sucess!

bring gaiters! I took the standard route up, but went around back to the Powerline trail to get home. This was a big mistake without snowshoes. I was in thigh deep snow most of the way which made this one of the most exhausting hikes of my life. The trail could not be found after a while and I was forced to break trail and bushwhack over the ridge back to the original trail.

Main Trail from Roxborough State Park  Sucess!

Hiked with Ian on a clear, warm day. Great views of Denver, Roxborough State Park, and the unusual red rock formations. Friends live within walking distance, so I plan on doing this one again someday.
