Description

From the Mountain Lakes Loop Trail #3727, turn southeast onto a use trail that continues along the ridge toward Aspen Butte. Its tread is easy to see most of the way, but it is also marked with cairns here and there, particularly when it crosses one of the small boulder fields on the ridge. If in doubt, stay on or near the ridgecrest. The climb to the summit is mostly gentle and becomes only moderately steep (but with no scrambling) in its last 0.3 miles.
