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.

Though there's not much of it, this is indeed a Colorado 14er...expect some scree!
