Details

This will be a loop hike starting at the trailhead on CO Hwy 67.  We will go up the trail for about 1 mile and then north onto the Ring-the-Peak Trail.  We will follow this up to the north slope of Sentinel Point.  We will then go off trail and hike south on steep slopes up to the summit.  There are a few big boulders to negotiate near the summit, but that section is optional.  From the highpoint we will continue south following the south ridge until we get close to treeline.  We will then turn west and drop steeply off trail to Horsethief Falls.  From there we will pick up a trail and follow it back to the trailhead.




Notes

Leader lives in Teller County and will meet the group in Divide or at the trailhead.
