O'Malley Peak

My favorite peak in the Front Range. It looks scarier than it actually is, with a long run or hike up to the Ballfields, and then a tough scree climb to get to the back side. This is, of course, followed by an endless series of false peaks to get to the actual peak, but the views are so worth it!

Good trailhead, with several good options for short hikes and runs among the various loops there.

One of my favorite runs in the Front Range. Easy access and a well-defined trail. Punishing uphill that never seems to relent, and then a fun, fast downhill.

Nice, easy access trail. Plenty of parking and a well-made trail up for most of the way.

Great peak with amazing views. A couple of fun ways to get to it, my favorite is taking Power Line until you are almost at the pass, and then turning left and go up the saddle between Avalanche and The Wedge. Follow a goat trail above Ship Lake and the continue up to the top of The Ramp.

Excellent trail, especially in the mid-summertime when the wildflowers are out. Be mindful of bears and moose, especially on the eastern half of the loop.

I love the variety of trails that are all accessible in one site. You can adjust the length of your trek depending on your mood and how much time you have to hike.

If you have decent snow, park a car at Hilltop Ski Area or Prospect heights and start at Flat Top to access PowerLine trail to north. Four hour ski. At Prospect, head toward stopsign in at road to find trail down to Hilltop. Fun!
