We drove to the creek crossing at 10,850 ft and then hiked from there. The 3 mi drive on the jeep road was the crux of the trip.
Prettier and more enjoyable hike than I expected, as it's not such a great mountain to look at.
found GPS along the road up to Antero on 9/19/14. Looked like it was recently lost. PM me.
long hike on the road, not technical, nice summit views, hails and rain on the way back…
Drove about 2.5 miles up, felt sorry for my car, so made my son and Duchess (14 years old) to hike up the rest of the road. I parted with them below Antero, and continue onto Mt. White and Cronin Peak.
I am so happy to be done with 14ers - there were at least 50 people on the summit! (church youth groups etc).
Hiked from the bottom of Baldwin Gulch Road.
3 hrs, 5 mins to summit from Baldwin Gulch TH. Under 6 hours total. 5k gain over 12 miles. Just made the summit before weather came. "Be off the summit by noon" is a good rule of thumb except when it storms at 10:30am. haha.
Halfway done with the CO 14ers! Hiked up from the overflowing river. Got the Outback up the road almost to the river, bumpy ride for sure. Car seems okay. A few snow patches across the road, but nothing impassable. No need for snowshoes or traction - yippee!
Antero was a nice easy 14er, if you drive all the way to the top of the 4x4 road it's not far at all to the summit. We stopped about 3 miles from the top and hiked from there.
Took most of the 4wd to the stream crossing and climbed from there. Fun day! Those jems are hard to find
Hiked all 15 miles on a very hot day - the mountain itself isn't that pretty but the views were great.
Great time with great friends.
Only 9.5 hours RT. Small bootpack lower down on the road. Not much snow up there. Had bitter cold temps in the morning...probably 0 to -8 would be my guess. It feels like winter up there but it certainly doesn't look like it.
No one else all day.
good group of guys, but just a big pile of rocks...
This was a fun, quick outing in the late fall. Good 4WDing to the river crossing. The road after the crossing was blocked by an ice sheet. The hike from there was ~3,200 quick feet of vertical.
Would not recommend hiking this road... you're competing with motorcycles, ATVs, and lots of other 4WD offroad vehicles (and their fumes/noise). Was not a fun hike by this route.
A nice mountain
Last peak of the season, snow already all around, very pretty mountai but I didn't find any aquamarine.
Drove up the Baldwin Gulch road to the creek crossing, then hiked up the road towards the summit, cutting up a couple of gullies to shorten the distance. Total distance 8.9 miles. Started at 7:30, finished at 1:30. Was joined by my 8 month old Golden Retriever, Loki (his 4th 14er), Luke and his his 9 year old Husky, Genesis. This was my 31st 14er.
