Couldn't have asked for a more beautiful day or season. The rain this year has made a surreal ultra green Colorado experience. Happy goats abound.

Beautiful fall weather and windy. Just did a portion of the trail.

Snow storm started on the way up

Satisfaction overload but super hard! Great day with Joe. Took our time, straight up/straight down! Struggled a bit but survived - no goats on our day

Nice hike. Got there around 6:45 am on a Friday with perfect weather. Was plenty of parking available in the lower lot. Good entry level 14,000 hike.

CAMPR - straightforward, easy summit

Such a lovely view! --my first 14er. I arrived early and started hiking at 5:30 a.m., reached the peak 5 hours 14 minutes later, with lots of breaks.

Felt great! VERY busy

Can get pretty crowded heading up to the summit but it was totally worth it! Definitely try for an early start!

Very challenging, but so happy to climb my first 14er! Trails are super crowded, but luckily they don't get in the way of the views.
Jun 22, 2020
Clear of snow until a 100 foot patch right before the top. Lots of curious goats on the trail
Jun 21, 2020
met some cool cats on the trail, saw a mountain goat, first 14er by myself!

Very hard snow pack and totally doable without spikes although they would have made it a little easier

Met Becky from Wyoming and we spent most of the day together. Like the others this week, a slog but my fave of the three I bagged.
Aug 22, 2019
More crowded than other 14ers. A lot of time on rocks. But great views still.
Aug 18, 2019
The trailhead is about .3 miles or so from the parking lot
Jul 29, 2019
Great hike, steep but not very technical! Loved the view
Jul 28, 2019
My first 14er! Not quite as hard as I thought it would be, although the altitude was definitely challenging.
Jul 20, 2019
Definitely bring spikes and poles if you have them. People made it in just hiking boots but the snow field at the top is slippery by 8:30.

Fun with all the snow
Jun 6, 2019
Ryley and I car camped. Got early start. Had snowshoes and needed em. Great start slow going at top. Rested up there a bit enjoying a peak beer.
Jan 14, 2019
Bluebird skies and a perfect windless day on the peak.

Bring snowshoes and wind protection

Hiked with Amy. Amy was fast to get up. Mia ran down. Felt great post hike!
Sep 15, 2018
Last 1/3 is very rocky and steep. Challenging hike.
Aug 12, 2018
Started at 6 pm, saw sunset at the top and night hiked back- it was a last minute decision but definitely worth it!!!!
Aug 5, 2018
climbed the east ridge in a drizzle and rain clouds. sleet and snow at the the summit then clear skies on the descent
Jul 25, 2018
Beautiful day. Nothing technical but rocky the last 2 miles to the top
Jul 22, 2018
This was a family attempt to summit a 14er together. We had a couple that struggled but still made 13,800 while the other 6 of us made the summit.
Jul 14, 2018
Took my 9 year old up our first 14er. He struggled with the elevation gain and rocks, but it was a fantastic experience. Busy, no snow or goats.
Jul 6, 2018
Pretty crowded but amazing views
Jun 30, 2018
First 14er. Last 1k feet was brutal, and the descent was a killer on my knee so I had to take it slow. It was a cool experience though!
Jun 21, 2018
2nd day at altitude, harder than expected, great mountain goats
Jun 20, 2018
Summit in 1h:50m. Extremely winds at the peak. Rocky trail above tree line. Wildlife common on trails esp. Colorado mountain goats.
Jun 10, 2018
Loose rocks. Took my lab she did well but there were mountain goats.
Jun 9, 2018
windy but clear of storms or any bad weather.
Jun 3, 2018
Many areas near top have no clear path and was stuck picking way thru rock field or hard pack snow. Overall good conditions
May 26, 2018
Still a good amount of snow on the final push up the summit. Made it to the top in trail shoes without micro spikes.
May 10, 2018
Left at 7, good snow to top. Snow coming down was post hole heaven, even with snowshoes! Super slow going!
Jan 14, 2018
Deep snow. Lots and lots of wind. Had to turn around at 13,700 ft due to extreme wind.
Sep 19, 2017
very windy today hiked this with fam
Aug 26, 2017
Chelseas first 14er! Sort rough going down with all the loose stones.
Aug 23, 2017
Physically demanding trail for the avg person with limited hiking. 1st one with the wife!
Aug 12, 2017
Holy hell! Amazing hike, amazing views!!!
Aug 6, 2017
birthday hike, one of the best top views
Aug 5, 2017
This is always marked as class one, but it always feels harder. Definitely enjoyed it, though.
