Details

Hike from Crags Trailhead to Devil's Playground to Pikes Peak summit, all on trail. 5 of the 7 miles are above treeline.



Great photo opportunities plus World-Famous Donuts available at summit. Return by same route.



High-altitude conditioning required.Participants should be comfortable hiking above 13000 ft, and have done so recently, since This is a trailblazer hike, I hope to maintain a fairly fast but not brutal pace, the elevation gain is fairly gradual for a 14er and we will get donuts at the top.



The 5am start time is to make sure we summit before weather hits.



 




Notes

This is a trailblazer hike, but all CMC members can join if they are in good shape.
