“A spur that leaves from the Mirror Lake trail and summits Comanche Peak.”— Brian Smith
Take in the views of Mirror Lake from above as you hike up the ridgeline towards the summit. At the top of the trail, make your way (scramble) through the rocks towards one of two high points. The northeastern peak is the true summit from which the views are astounding. If the vastness and beauty of your surroundings are not enough to take your breath away, the altitude will be.
Flora: Ponderosa pine, douglas fir, wildflowers, shrubs
