Underrated Peak - Did Evergreen Mtn Also  Sucess!

Wow Elephant Butte is awesome. Killer trail and the best summit views of any peak in this area…seriously good. Went uptempo on the way down, before going over and sumitting Evergreen Mtn. Made it from summit to the Mountain Muhly intersection (1 mile) in 6:53.

Mountain Muhly Trail  Sucess!

Another favorite front range hike of mine. Combos perfectly with a scramble on the Three Sisters afterwards.

beautiful and secluded spot  Sucess!

I climbed this peak with Randy and Sharon, two of my "usual suspect" buddies, and their dog Bandit. We had a splendid weather day. The views from the top were surprisingly excellent, with full 360 degree panoramic vistas. The trail is well-maintained, in spite of not being a part of the Jeffco Open Space Parks. This is a great short day hike if you want solitude and spectacular views of the area.

Elephant  Sucess!

Started in the parking lot on the west side of Alderfer/Three Sisters and took the trail to the north until I broke off and headed northwest cross country until I hit another unmarked trail. Followed that towards the west and the summit.

Windy, but beautiful first day of spring day.

Nice trail hike  Sucess!

Scrambling is fun, but trail hikes are awfully pleasant. What I would call a "smartly" routed trail, it was a pleasure to hike.
