Details

We will hike south through several switchbacks in Ponderosa pine, Douglas-fir, and Rocky Mtn juniper trees.  The trail tops out on a ridge near mile 1 by HG Ranch signage with wonderful views of the Mummy Range.  We will continue on to Piper Meadow, where Harry Piper operated a dairy into the 1930's.  There are remnants of the Piper farm scattered in this area.  Climbing another 1.5 mi to a ridge above Tree Gulch, we'll hike .5 mile to the summit of Crosier Mtn where we are rewarded with views of Longs Peak and the divide.  This hike can be strenuous in warm weather but is very enjoyable in spring. 




Notes

Hiked as a wildcat non CMC group with three.  Had a fantastic day on the Croser trail with beautiful views along the Glen Haven route and at the summit.  Gorgeous day!
