Details

From the Button Rock TH off Route-36 west of Lyons we follow the Sleepy Lion Trail up and out of the N St Vrain River canyon for 1 mile.  We then head off trail south up a series of ridges to the summit of Coffintop Mountain.   You can see from the trip stats that this is a steep hike so don't think it easy because of the short distance.  We return the way we came.  Coffintop has several approach routes all of which look interesting - this is probably the easiest.  Although this hike has not appeared in the CMC trip database in the last 10 years the leader knows at least some CMC members have visited Coffintop.  Below is a link to a fellow who has visited the mountain from 3 directions.  The following link is his Button Rock route I intend to follow.  Note the great views.
