Lovely hike, near the summit scramble was very tame—large stable rock with trail cairns to mark the way.

Fantastic conditions with little traffic on the trail. The first 14er we've done that we would do again.

Guanella Pass to summit. Back via old decommissioned "trail". Way too crowded up (100+) but awesome. (6.5/2600)
Sep 19, 2020
Very very busy trail. Slow you down having to move over to let people going up through. We started at 5:30 it was so icy cold and windy!

Just up to the top, then across the sawtooth to the top of Evans. Down via the gully and through the willows to the trailhead.

Challenging scramble to the top, but the view is definitely worth it! Be prepared for scatter thunderstorms.

Great 14er! First time hiking in CO at such high altitude. This TX girl needed plenty of rest stops on the way up!
Jul 28, 2019
scramble at top. 13000 and above was brutal. dad wanted to stop at 12300, but I convinced him not to. getting to summit it with my dad was GLORIOUS…

The creek was up on the return.

Summit today during some very high winds and poor conditions.

Midway Trail covered by snow; to feel more safe use Tracks/Crampons. You can run/jog it on your way down.
Oct 23, 2018
Good hike, snowy near the summit. Need to be prepared for snowy trails with spikes and walking poles.

O.M.G! I almost died but I did it!

Amazing views at the top. Rock scramble at the end was super fun going up, much more challenging going down.

1st 14er w Amo
Altitude sick barfed
Aug 19, 2018
2 hour 20 to summit. Arrived at 6 on sun and parking already busy. Pretty hike, but kinda boring by the end. The final scramble isn’t as bad as it…
Aug 8, 2018
Solo. 30 minutes on the summit included in the time. Needed 1.5 liters of water in the hydro pack, plus a 20 oz Gatorade and a bottle of preworkout.
Aug 5, 2018
easy trail, rainy and windy weather presented a challenge.

birthday summit! left the truck around 0530 and was back before 1000. only a few groups on the way up, but many headed up on my descent.

Generally this hike takes fast hikers 6-7 hours, we did it in exactly 5, in Vans & Converse sneakers! We were NOT planing on summiting a 14er today!!
Sep 9, 2017
Started hike at 8 am, already crowded. Summited at 11:00 am, back to the car by 1:00 pm. Lots of crowds but relatively short hike for a 14er
Sep 4, 2017
Summited, but harder than expected. The scramble during the last l.5 miles or so were crazy. Struggled with altitude sickness!
Aug 30, 2017
Wow my 1st 14er and it did not disappoint! Make sure you have water, electrolytes, hiking boots, the hiking poles were a must for me, and enjoy it!

Easy 14er to bag. Lots of people on the trail even with a 6am start.
Jul 11, 2017
Hiked with 9 friends, most of whom are not really hikers...everyone made it to the summit! Boulders at the top were the hardest part.
