A summit trail ascending the southern face of San Luis Peak from the Colorado Trail (CT).

Description

Use this trail to detour from the Colorado Trail (CT) to summit San Luis Peak. The trail will be rocky and very windy, as you'll be traveling above tree line for most of the journey. You'll want to use appropriate caution on the steeper portions of the route, as the rocks on San Luis Peak are mostly small and loose.
