I'm a little bit shocked that we didn't posthole down the entire Gulch at 2PM on a warm spring day. But not disappointed.
Headed straight up the hill.
From Woods Mountain. Trip Report
Climbed with Bard peak to finish a hike that was started last week. Great glissade from the saddle to get back to I-70.
climbed with jamie. there was a beaten path through the snow lower down and none above treeline. pretty tired and worn down today.
Climbed solo with Bard Peak and Woods Mtn the Sunday after Thanksgiving to burn off that Turkey. Snowy cold morning gave way to a windy cold afternoon. Not too much snow above treeline but snowshoes came in handy below.
Climbed with brenta on cold, snowy, and breezy day. The altitude really seemed to affect me for some reason.
climbed this one again on my way to Bard Peak and again on my way back to do Woods Mountain. Still alot of snow lower down and on the ridge connecting the two. I was the only one up here all day long! from 8:00am to 5:00pm, Wonderful day!!
On a very hot day, we combined this with Woods Mountain.
Great day, sunny, very windy. Views all the way to Longs and Meeker up north, to Bierstadt and company out east and views of the divide. Great day hike! little people traffic.
We did the Grand Circle route up Englemann, Robeson, Parnassus, Bard and Woods starting from the Urad Mine and ending at the Herman Gulch TH.
The neighboring Bard Peak would be easy too also hit in a day but we had to descend due to building stormclouds
Climbed this with a new co-worker who has turned out to be one of my main climbing partners! Chased off the summit by some lightning, but otherwise a good day! A Tri-Centennial.
Perfect day, went up with a neighbor and it was his first peak. Also, we celebrated his first week being smoke free with a peak climb, awsome job for him.
What and awesome area. My wife and I had a great day with warmer temps and no wind. Only 3-5 inches of snow to contend with and excellent views from Long's to Holy Cross. Couldn't have picked a better late season day.
Windy and cold on the summit ridge. A storm was coming in so we didn't stay long and couldn't really see very much. A very cool view of Bard Peak though. A nice hike with easy access and a short drive from Denver.
Good views of familiar peaks from this one. An icy wind up high so I didn't stay long. The first hike I've done from the Herman Gulch TH without seeing another person.
this, along with Woods mtn, is a great winter day hike from denver, from watrous gulch.
Trail was nice most of the way, although snow covered a large portion of the route to the saddle once I crossed the creek. Some postholing was encounted, but all in all the snow was solid to walk on. I reached the summit in 2.5 hours to cold and winds. I was surprised to see a summit cairn and log, which I signed. A bit cloudy the whole trip, but I beat the weather and had a good time!
