Deer Mountain Trail  Sucess!

Mild hike with good views of Long's Peak. Nice choice for acclimatization.

Ideal to acclimatize  Sucess!

For a flatlander such as myself, this was a perfect acclimatizing hike for Mt Yale 2 days later.

Great View of Estes Park  Sucess!

I was on my way out of the park early one morning on my way back to KS when for some reason I had the notion to stop off and get in 1 more hike. It was very worth it and had a great view of Estes Park. Listed as "strenuous" at the trail head, it is actually quite mild. It was quite snowy in March 2007 so some snowshoes would have helped but most of the snow was packed.

good hike to a 360 view  Sucess!

Guessing on the year...though it was in the late 80's. Loved the panoramic view at the top. Be a nice horseback ride too.

Deer Mtn Trail  Sucess!

Started my day touring the peaks of Trail Ridge road with an ascent of Deer Mtn. Great sunrise alpenglow on Ypsilon and Longs. Even saw 2 deer, a mom and fawn, along the trail. Great start to the day!

damn snowshoers were faster than  Sucess!

Snowshoeing it on this trail felt like a sauna compared to the Mill's Lake hike we took the day before. I thought I was going to freeze my bum off there -40 degrees or so. Down saved my Southern Californian butt on this trip.....for sure!

quick and easy  Sucess!

The whole hike was fogged in, so we didn't get any good views, but it was a great wildflower season (because of all that moisture).

Standard route

Good way to get some views and share time spent with friends as I recovered from ACL replacement.

Standard Route  Sucess!

This was supposed to be a snowshoe, but the crappy, snow-less winter we're experiencing this year meant we carried our snowshoes the whole way while hiking on packed trail.

The views from the summit are just out of this world. I was pleased with this pleasant little hike. Hacking my way up with bronchitis, however, was not pleasant. My thanks go to my many hiking partners who tolerated my coughing fits. Partners: Ed's CMC hike.

A Nice Quick Hike  Sucess!

CCY didn't take as long as I thought and the weather was too nice to go home, so ran up Deer Mt real quick.

From Castle Mountain Lodge  Sucess!

Hiked from Castle Mountain Lodge which made it about a ten mile round trip. It was a good hike with good views of Longs.

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.
