Really wish Jeffco would just put an official trail the last 300 yards to the top and designate the summit.
Nice hike local to the metro area. Lots of trail options, and not too crowded during the week.
With Kevin and Keetna the dog on an icy day. Didn't know the name of the peak until afterwards.
I had to be in Denver for business, so I left early and on the way down I stopped at Apex Park, west of Denver in order to climb Indian Mountain. I went up the Apex Trail, then up the Sluice Box Trail to the Pick-N-Sledge and Grubstake Trail, which I followed to near the summit of Indian Mountain.
Indian Mountain was just as short distance off the trail and was a quiet place to eat lunch. Temperatures were more like early summer than February and there was only a gentle breeze.
I returned to the trail and hiked the Grubstake Loop before hiking down the Grubstake Trail to the Pick-N-Sledge Trail and then the Argos Trail back to the trailhead. My route was about 5.6 miles round trip.
