This is good accomplishment for kids, only about a quarter mile with 500 feet elevation gain; the first picture on this page tells it like it is. Views are great, but not that much better than driving the road. We had 20-25 mph wind, my understanding is that the wind gets a *lot* stronger.
Anyone know if we can be fined for going off the trail? :)
There's no trail. There are several high-use areas nearby with paved paths, where rangers might talk to you if you left the pavement, but Sundance is (relatively) lower use.
Just a fun car climb
Total ascents = 4. Nice summit view.
Don't know if this really counts...but I did stand on top after a short walk from TRR. Nice summit! Some fun rocks to scramble on east of the summit.
Because of the recent death of my husband's daughter (now ex-husband) this was a sad day, so we decided to find an easy sunny place to celebrate his birthday.
Strange outing with the road so close, but fun enough anyway.
80mph winds made for some tough going. Amazing views at the top in all directions. Beautiful peak!
