Parked at the bottom of the road in a small shoulder off the pavement. Some packed out vehicle tracks on the road below the hairpin then just boot tracks from there.
Great to be back in the mountains after more than a year in the flatlands! Very enjoyable hike! Great page here as well!
Nice short hike. Flag on summit. Literally I have nothng more to say.
Great mountain to get back into hiking again. Fantastic views. Started at Columbine Campground.
another fine peak in the central city area
Much better than a bushwhack!
The wife, pup, and I from Columbine Campground. For some reason I stupidly decided to leave the jacket and pack in the car...it was nice out...and this peak wouldn't take long. Let's just say I couldn't get back to the car fast enough after a snow squall moved through...
With Sarah. Kind of a neat little surprise!
With Bald Mountain, Pewabic Mountain, Bellevue Mountain, Maryland Mountain & Queen's Chair.
We drove as far up Hamlin Gulch Road as the Jeep preferred, then things got sketchy and we parked just below the big hairpin turn. (The road above gets narrow and down-sloping and is just not a pleasant place to be on 4 wheels in the snow!) Nice walk up to this summit, surprised to find a trail - Kiefer and I anticipated a bushwhack and found instead a well-traveled locals' peak.
