Description

From the Stewart Creek Trail, head up the San Luis Peak Trail at around 12,800 ft. At 13,000 ft, the trail becomes a talus field, still wide and with consistent fist-sized rocks. Continue on the left side of a rocky ridge, cresting around 13,700 ft. From here, follow a clear trail up some switchbacks to an obvious summit with a USGS marker. Depending on the time of year, you may be the only person within a 30 mile radius.

Flora & Fauna

Shortly after the start of this trail you will leave all flora behind. It might feel a little like you're on Mars. Other than the odd pika and marmot here and there, you won't see too much this high up.
