Kelso Mountain is a low thirteener in the front Range. It is the fourth and lesser peak of Upper Stevens Gulch, through which thousands of people pass on their way to nearby Grays and Torreys Peaks. We will park at or near the Grays and Torreys trailhead.  We will then hike the Grays trail, leaving the trail to ascend to the mine at the saddle between Kelso ridge and Kelso Mountain. We will climb the north east ridge of Kelso and return the same route. 

You are also encouraged to "register" for this trip through the services of  Look for the group "Groovy Hiking and Snowshoeing".  The event has the same name as this one. You get several advantages using the Meetup interface, including one-click addition to your electronic calendar; one-click posting to social media; seeing who else is on the trip and messaging them privately (without exchanging email addresses).

Here's the link for the Meetup event.
