Details

Stand where Lt. Zeb Pike stood (possibly) when he claimed the mountain that now bears his name would never be climbed. Mount Rosa tops out at timberline and, with mileage and elevation gain, is the physical equivalent of many a 14-er hike.  We'll meet at "the Hub" parking area where Gold Camp Road and High Drive intersect, walk up Gold Camp Road, take the St. Mary's Falls trail and connect to the Mt. Rosa trail. Lunch at the top and return the same way. The summit provides a great view of the Pikes Peak area and the Sangres to the southwest. The upper part of the trail is multi-use and has been chewed up by dirt bikes so sturdy footwear is a must. Prepared guests (gear and fitness) are welcome but no dogs.
