After having reopened the forest after the Cameron fire, we took the mid-week opportunity to get out and enjoy solitude (at least from humans). There was a big cat print in the snow and fresh scat on the trail ...
It was a bit smoky, due to the Cameron Peak Fire, but wow! This area is amazing. Hiked up Greyrock Mountain Trail and down the Greyrock Meadow Trail.
Nice trail run from Greyrock Trailhead. Apperently there was a rattlesnake and a bear on the trail that day, but we didn't see anything.
After work, I climbed Greyrock Mountain. Unfortunately, my camera was dead so I didn’t get any photos of the beautiful peak. I went up the Greyrock Mountain Trail and climbed The Crest along the way. After enjoying the summit (It was windy, but sunny), I headed back down. I took the Greyrock Meadows Trail down, completing a loop and climbing Peak 7180 along the way. I also helped two girls who kept losing the trail.
It was a beautiful hike and there was only a little snow and ice. There were lots of other people climbing the mountain as well.
Been up here many times now. Makes a great day outing if you can mind the crowds.
A beautiful hike and scramble on a sunny bright day.
Greyrock is one of my favorite "little" peaks ever! Beautiful approach, lovely scamper to the top. Completely amazed by the ponds near the summit! Could have done without the insane winds that were borderline dangerous up top. Icy trail due to heavy snow fall followed by a sunny warm trend.
Nice hike with wife +1. The water at the top was a nice surprise.
Fun jaunt up Greyrock.
Nice spring hike, Pasque Flowers are everywhere, sad to see this area was severely burned, but it's still beautiful.
This was my second time on Greyrock. I took the Greyrock Meadows trail to the summit. It was Labor Day, so there were a lot of hikers on the trail. It was a beautiful sunny day, but it was pretty hot. I went down the wrong drainage on the way back and ended up dropping down into the Hewlett burn area on the east side of the mountain. But I eventually bushwhacked my way back to the trail, and descended the Greyrock trail back to the road.
Busy at the summit after a relaxing hike through pretty forest and burn area.
A fun and quick hike with my wife. We enjoyed hearing the frogs croaking in the small pond near the summit. We also took in the views of the burn area while watching a helicopter make seed drops to the south. The summit rock was nice to scramble on, which made for a good end to the hike up.
Hiked a loop through the burn area. Climbed/downclimbed the Weenie Route on Greyrock, made it over across the meadows to Aiguille du Greyrock, North Greyrock and PT 6,712'. Burn area is very interesting, especially with all the hay that has been spread around.

Hiked and rock climbed on this mountain several times, always a blast. Beautiful area, great rock for climbing. Close to town
Climbed multiple routes on Grey Rock.
One cool destination to go and climb for the day. Lots of choices. Good camping in the lower meadows as well. Definitely a Front Range gem!
Started from Hewitt Gulch, climbed in order UN6740, UN7180, North Greyrock, Aiguille du Greyrock, Greyrock Mountain, and UN6485 ending back at the TH. Wonderful weather, Aiguille du Greyrock was the definite highlight of the day.
Many fun routes on this rock! great place to take beginning trad climbers
Great climbing, too! With Greg.
