Haven't Scrambled In a While...  Sucess!

Did this with my friend Ben in the evening. Didn't see anyone all the way up to Lookout Summit. Summitted then made our way down to Horsetooth peak for a quite summit and dismount before storms started rolling in. Super fun hike!

Fun Evening Hike  Sucess!

Came up here with my buddy Jesse for an evening hike. Trail was very clear all the way up to the saddle with Meeker Ridge. Followed cairns up to the summit of Lookout. Fun little Class 4 summit block with amazing views. Went over to Horsetooth afterward.

Lookout Mountain #28  Sucess!

Was surprised with the solitude and peace with this hike. Really pretty, fun and easy.

Lookout Mountain Trail  Sucess!

This was a fast and fun hike with my wife. The weather was great and we enjoyed the view from the summit. There was still some snow on the trail, but we were able to plod through with relative ease.

Horse Creek to Lookout Mountain  Sucess!

Started at 8 am from Horse Creek TH and got to the summit at 9:30. On the way down I didn't really follow the cairns and just headed NW until the trail showed up. Some solid views of Wild Basin from this peak.

Lookout and Horsetooth  Sucess!

Given the gray, low hanging clouds I didn't get to see too much surrounding views. Meeker's summit was shrouded in cloud, but I could see early snow on it's slopes. Started my hike at the Meeker Park trailhead, headed up the saddle between Lookout and Meeker and then followed the cairns to the summit. Afterwards headed over to Horsetooth before returning to my truck just in time for the rain to start.

good hike, not much traffic  Sucess!

Great views of Wild Basin and Meeker. It doesn't get much traffic compared with other RMNP peaks, which is nice.

Lookout - Horsetooth  Sucess!

Snowshoed the pair from 'Horse Creek TH' near Meeker Park. Ascended the summit block which wasn't trivial due to icy conditions. Snowed much of the trip.

Short and steep with good views of Wild Basin, Mount Meeker and Twin Sisters.

Lookout  Sucess!

Uneventful until the summit block. Went on to Horsetooth, which is a far better mountain

Nice finish  Sucess!

A good hike for a late start on a Saturday. Saw three people all day, which was very nice. Excellent look at the clouds rolling in over Meeker. Summit block rewarding. Zero wind this day. Rare.

Via Meeker Ridge  Sucess!

Horribly off-route, we bushwhacked through forest & snow off Meeker Ridge to pick up the Lookout Mountain trail to get back to civilization. Jeff waited at the creek crossing while I jaunted up to tag this & Horsetooth. 30 minutes RT. Hitchhiked back to the Long's Peak TH.
Views were OK. Sandbeach Lake was in decent view.

via Lookout Mountain Trail  Sucess!

This was a nice snowshoe, and provided excellent views of massive Mount Meeker. The only downside was the strong wind at the summit, which prohibited me from climbing the "diving board" to attain the true summit.

cool mountain  Sucess!

Great summit block...way too windy to enjoy it for more than 10 seconds...then over to horsetooth...Fun day, but was very confused by the trails...so many in all sorts of directions, but none seemed to go where I wanted them too.

Route Climbed: Southeast Rige Date Climbed: 8 April, 2004  Sucess!

Great hike to an awesome summit. Beautiful rock outcroppings along the way and great views of Wild Basin. The summit block made for icing on the cake. I also included Horsetooth Peak in this outing. There was alot of snow in the trees on North and East facing slopes.
