  • I visited there the July of 2018. The trip up winds through beautiful mountain scenery. Once above the timberline the view become spectacular. The lack of guardrails along this narrow highway...

  • Out and back trail, 5.5 miles each way. About 3500 feet of elevation gain / loss each way. Trail is well marked and rocky. Incline is mild but consistent and gets steeper as you go. Views get amazing once you break above the tree line. Once you get to the top of Flat top mountain, Hallet's Peak will be on your left, you will wrap around the Glacier and rock field to take the final ascent. Altitude is a factor especially if your not from Colorado. Bring plenty of water and snacks, and a rain /wind jacket. This is a moderately difficult hike if your in good shape. Start early 5-7 AM, afternoon thunderstorms will likey show up. This is a perfect day trip hike.
  • Start early take it slow and this will be one of your favorite hikes there's rock cairns at the top to hide from the wind so take time and enjoy the views
