Details

This trail offers panoramic views of Mount Meeker, Longs Peak, the Continental Divide and the Mummy Range.  The elevation gain is a little over 900’ with a short, easy class three scramble to get to the summit where we will enjoy a 360 degree view.  We will hike through scattered aspens and ponderosa pine trees, and climb gradually up to an open landscape overlook of Estes Park and the first view of the Mummy Range to the northwest.  After this overlook, the trail flattens; Longs Peak and Mount Meeker come into view toward the southwest then the Continental Divide north of Longs Peak.  After a short scramble through a notch in the rock to a fairly flat summit we will enjoy spectacular views in all directions. This is a wonderful place to have lunch.  




Notes

Logistical details will be sent to participants 2-3 days before the hike.

Ride share $9 and the hike could take about 5-6 hours.
