Nice loop with some elevation gain in first mile if you go counter clockwise, some trail confusion going down but overall nice hike in Ela Paso County only 45 minutes drive from home.
Parked directly below and went straight up. Lots of elevation gain but not a bad direct route.
From Mt. Herman. Did a lot of bushwhacking on this one.
Took advantage of the previous day's snowstorm and skied up past the reservoirs to the saddle and junction with trail 715. Followed the ridge from the west to Raspberry summit.
It was a pleasant, relaxing way to kick off December by hiking up to this summit in warm, sunny weather. Totally surprised to find a trail leading right up to the last few feet to the top! I expected having to 'shwack! Lovely day, nice little close to home hike.
