Not sure of exact date. Scrambled & bushwhacked up to the summit with friends while on retreat at YMCA of the Rockies back in January/February 2001.
I am not sure the road existed back then. We were unaware we were trespassing on private property or likely would have avoided. I do not remember much for views; I think the summit was mostly shrouded in clouds.
Great for the rocks, walk, scrambles, and company though.
With the pup. Combined with Lily and Rams Horn.
With Rams Horn Mountain & Prospect Mountain.
Along with Emerald, Deer Mountain and Deer Ridge.
Pretty similar to Emerald in terms of hiking and views from summit.
Short rush to the summit while the horses took a break.
