Mount Bierstadt Trail

My friend Erin and I completed the hike on Wednesday 10-1-2014 we were two of only six hikers to be seen on the trail that day, so it was a blast! We began our hike at 6:54 am and took our time being that it was my friends first 14er. We made the summit around 10 am and just in time to head back down and beat a nasty Snowstorm that was rolling in. Beautiful hike! Not super difficult and what a great way to see my first snowflakes of this years fall. The Aspen trees were stunning and we saw Moose and mountain goats about. What a perfect day!

Horseshoe Lake Trail

Hiked 9/28/2014 - The trail is 8 miles round trip from the parking area of the Kinney Creek Trail. The trail is well maintained with only a few blowdowns at the time I hiked it. However there is potential for a lot more dead trees to fall. There are numerous small stream and spring crossings on the trail, eventually ending at Horseshoe Lake.

Twin Sisters Peak Trail

Hiked this trail on Sunday not many people on the way up, maybe 6 total. The landslide area is navigable and the trail across is marked. Definitely should be done early in the day, we hit the summit at 1:00pm just as the weather moved in, avoided most of it though. A lot of people headed up on while on our descent, which didn't seem smart.


Green Mountain Loop

Awesome, pretty difficult hike with beautiful views at Green Mountain Summit. Be prepared for lots of steep incline, a ladder (put in after the floods) that you have to climb to continue the trail. The second trail (Greenman) changes scenery a bit- it quickly became much greener (go figure) with lots of trees already turning yellow. Really nice. Took us four hours to complete, but we made a lot of stops on tall boulders going up to take in the views (and snack a bit). Started this hike wayyy too late, reached the summit at dusk and had to haul it back down (I like to avoid hiking in the dark, even with flashlights)- KILLED my ankles. Worth it, though. Crowds were limited- we only met about four pairs of hikers going up, a couple going down.
