Details

We will start at Loveland Pass (11,990').  From Loveland Pass, we will head east, along the Continental Divide, up to an unnamed peak (12,915'). From there we will head north, over another unnamed peak (elevation 13,152') to Mt. Sniktau (Elevation 13,284').  From Mt. Sniktau, we will return south to the unnamed peak (elevation 13,152'), then continue further south along the Continental Divide to Mt. Cupid (Elevation 13,117').  From Mt. Cupid, we will return to Loveland Pass.



There are are beautiful views all around from the ridges and peaks on this hike.  I expect this hike to mostly require microspikes, but depending on weather and trail conditions we may need our snowshoes.
