This is a strenuous loop hike from the hub parking lot in Cheyenne Canyon. We will hike up Seven Bridges Trail to Trail 720 to the Forester Trail. Then we will hike off trail up the face of Runs-down-fast Mountain and summit. From there we will hike across the west ridge and up to unnamed Point 11,639 and summit, then across the southwest ridge and up to Mount Almagre. From here we will hike down the secondary trail paralleling North Cheyenne Creek and cross the Forester Trail and come down the Pipeline Trail and Seven Bridges Trail.  There are many wonderful views of Cheyenne Cañon, historical sites and The Springs throughout this trip.
