“A steady climb to the south summit of Almagre Mountain.”— K Keiter
Continue the ascent for another .25 miles to the locked gate. Motorized vehicles are not allowed past the locked gate due to the fragile ecosystem. Go around the gate, and follow the trail as it curves to the left.
From here, it is another mile to the summit with an elevation gain of about 700 ft. Listen for the marmots whistling, as they are warning others of your presence.
The Almagre Mountain South summit is nothing spectacular, as it is a platform for communication towers; but the views are quite something, offering miles of sights of the Sawatch Mountain Range. Additionally, at this elevation, Pikes Peak looks a bit less assuming, but still wondrous.
