  • We got to Milner Pass around 7:30 am and barely got a parking spot. This is a moderately strenuous 10 mile hike that goes up to about 12,900 feet at the summit. The majority of the hike is exposed tundra which means you can see the trail for miles up ahead. Beautiful views of Grand Lake and Longs Peak at the summit! You will see lots of marmots along the trail.
  • Excellent hike! Start early, wear layers, crush it!
