Description

After leaving the comfort of the Arapaho Glacier Trail, simply follow the obvious cairns to the top of South Arapaho Peak. Though steep and somewhat loose, this trail never becomes more difficult than Class 2.

If you're looking to spice things up a little and live on the wild side, pick your own line to the top.
