“A stunning climb with views at the top that go on endlessly.”— David Orner
Right from the start, you'll quickly gain elevation via a few switchbacks. The trail goes straight north through a pleasant pine forest. After you cross another small creek, turn right on the forest road.
You'll pass through a small open meadow, and after a small climb, you'll reach a point where you leave Ring The Peak Trail (Catamount Trail). The spot is marked by several wooden posts in the ground but can be easy to miss. From here, it's less than a mile uphill to the summit of Raspberry Mountain, with a short descent into a saddle before the final push.
At the top, keep left and find the best way up those huge boulders. Enjoy 360-degrees views that include Sawatch Range, Sangre De Cristo Mountains, Pikes Peak, and Catamount Reservoirs.
