Details

From the Stevens Gulch TH, we will hike the Grays Peak Trail for two miles where we will leave the Grays Peak trail and climb about 200 yards northwest to the saddle connecting Kelso Mountain and Torreys Peak, at approximately 12,300’.  From the saddle we will turn west and scramble the class 3 ridge to Torreys Peak.  We will descend on the trail connecting Torreys with Grays Peak and return via the Grays Peak Trail.  Depending on time of day, weather, and energy of the group, we may decide to also summit Grays Peak. If we also summit Grays Peak, total round trip milage will increase to 8.1 miles and total elevation gain will be 3560 feet.
