Nice warmup hike  Sucess!

Hiked this the morning before a Chapin-Chiquita-Ypsilon trifecta.
This was as relaxing and enjoyable as a summit hike could be.
About an hour and a half to get the the top, great views of the Mummy Range as well as Longs peak. We hiked this one on a Saturday and were the first in the parking area at 6am.
FYI- Since horses are welcome on this trail you'll be dodging a fair amount of poo.

Yep ...  Sucess!

... kind of what I imagined. Much like a foothills timber hike, with a good view at the top. If you want something spectacular, go elsewhere. I would guess this would be a hot one mid-summer.

May hike  Sucess!

Nice forested hike with two friends from back east. Good views from the summit of Beaver Meadows and Longs Peak.

Snowshoe  Sucess!

Did this as a snowshoe one winter - nice climb on a sunny day in the Park. I attempted on another occassion and wandered around near the summit - didn't have my GPS at the time!!

From Trail Ridge J(x)  Sucess!

Pretty quick trip. Lingered awhile at the top taking in the views of Estes and Moraine Park. Made a small fire for 'ambiance'. Good day with good weather.

Quick and easy summit  Sucess!

A little over an hour to ascend. Found a group of people on the summit who rode horses up there. The guide, complete with cowboy hat and Levi's, stumbled upon the summit marker that he had never seen before. After he asked out loud what it was, I told him. I guess cowboys don't know much about mountaineering?

Combined this with a hike to Mills Lake to make a great day.

With My Mom  Sucess!

Climbed with my mom. This is the most effort I've ever seen her put into an activity. I was very proud of her.
