Peak Mount Bierstadt Group Stone Trailhead Guanella Pass Trailhead My brother and I arrived at the trailhead a little before 8 that morning. There were plenty of cars filling up the parking lot so we decided to try to get a head start from as many of them as possible. The air was cool and […]

Peak Horseshoe Mountain Group N/A Trailhead Silver Horse Dr The brisk air helped keep me moving a very good speed. I arrived at 8 in the morning and the entire trip took roughly 5 hours to complete. Not very many people crossed my path and I'm very glad that I completed it before snow fall! […]

An extra 500!

Peak Rocky Mountain Group N/A Trailhead The Incline This hike was actually a last minute decision! I pulled into the parking lot rough at 10;30 and started the ascent. It took me about an hour and a half to get to the top of the Manitou Incline. After that was another 500 elevation increase to […]

Peak Rocky Mountain Group N/A Trailhead Manitou Incline This was my second hike in a row. I spent the night before in Colorado Springs, then drove to the trailhead. Parking here is expensive, so I drove back into town for cheaper parking and hoofed it up to the trailhead (about 1/2 mile). There are two […]

Snow and Scramble up Birthday Peak

Peak Birthday Peak Group N/A Trailhead Kroenke Lake Trailhead My third peak in three days. This trail started way back on the Kroenke Lake Trail, then split off with some off trail navigation up towards the peak. It was pretty easily followed with a map (and I had GaiaGPS with offline maps, too). There was […]

Windy Day on Horseshoe Mountain

Peak Horseshoe Mountain Group N/A Trailhead Leavick This was a solitary venture up an windswept land. The trail was entirely above the tree line, and the glacier-carved cirque that forms the namesake feature of the mountain was pocked with the remains of old mining operations. There are many “trails” that wind up towards the peak. […]

Peak Mount Bierstadt Group N/A Trailhead French Gulch Full disclosure: I did not hike up Mount Bierstadt. I hiked up something harder; Mount Guyot. This peak is just east of Breckenridge, and it was originally supposed to be one of the six peaks in the challenge. After I hiked it, we decided it would be […]
