A little harder than guide books says but a fun hike!
Did not like this one as it is mostly boulder hopping. Steep scree field on the way down but you get down quick. Did this in combination with Sunlight which seemed easy after this one.
After taking the Durango-Silverton train to Needleton and backpacking up into Chicago Basin, my husband, Jay, and I did both Sunlight and Windom on this day. As is the rule more than the exception, a storm built up by afternoon, just as we were summiting Windom. We took a chance and made it, then ran down to our campsite in the blinding rain.
