We hill hike about 3 miles up the Threemile Creek trailnorth of Grant, CO, then attempt to bushwack to the top of Spearhead Mountain 22,244 ft.  It looks like it has trees all the way to the summit, so I am not sure if there is any view.


We meet at 6:30 am for a no later than 6:45 start at the parking by The Fort Restaurant in Morrison: first exit west on Hwy 285 just past the intersection with C470.

We drive out Hwy 285 to Grant, turning onto Guanella Pass Road.  The parking lot is a couple of miles along the road.

I am assuming at this time that we will be in snowshoes, but we will assess the weather and snow conditions as we get closer.

Bring your micro spikes and snowshoes

Bring other appropriate winter gear
