Crosier Mtn. via Garden Gate Trailhead. This is an excellent route, 2 miles of steep ascent through thick woods then across Piper meadows and continues through a couple valley/ridges to Crosier Summit. 5.1 miles up, 2600' ascent, through some of the most beautiful backcountry you'll experience. I've run, hiked and snowshoed this route and have done the Glen Haven to Garden gate [Drake] route and it's both beautiful and serene. The vistas on the way up are amazing and Crosier summit provides an awesome view of RMNP.

If you are going to bike the trail enter the trail on the west side NOT at the 2 mile entrance from drake. The climb on mountian bike is too difficult to ride IMPOSSIBLE. From the summit the trail going backdown to the 2 mile from drake is expert level coming down... This is a great trail if you start from either entrance on the westside of the trail, not at the 2 mile from drake. Coming in on the west side is a hard climb going up, with some points that you have to walk, Coming down is fast and difficult lots of fun.. Elk and Deer everywhere...

This is a great hike if you need to get out for the day! Great for dogs because of the many water crossings. Shade and sun is great too. Be cautious in the spring/early summer; snow can still be present past the boys camp. Can be muddy past boys camp but still passable.
