Details

We Will be hiking Chief Mountain Trail #58 (which starts near the Echo Mountain Ski Area on Colorado 103).



After summiting Chief Mountain, we will descend to within 0.3 miles of the TH and hike a 0.5 mile connector trail to the Fire Tower Trail which will take us to the summit of Squaw Mountain.



Pertinent Elevations:  10,729' Trailhead - 11,709' Chief Mountain - 11,486' Squaw Mountain



Even though the two summits are so close together, they each have their own majestic view, which is why we'll be hiking them both!!!  We'll see Pikes Peak all the way up to Longs Peak.  Chief Mountain has a particularly stunning view of the Mount Evans massif which is framed by two huge rock outcroppings.
