Surprised to see 14er has this one classified at 2, seems more difficult. Creek crossing was completely frozen, make sure to look for the cairn on your left to know where to cross and continue on the trail. Amazing view once you pass the old log cabin. Steep climb, crampons necessary for the sporadic icy spots. Amazing views the whole trip up the prominence, well worth the difficulty.

This is a great trail. Well marked, well traveled, steep in places but great views at the top!

Great!

Medano Pass was an awesome way to drop into great sand dunes!

Missouri Gulch TH : Long trail through a forest, meadow, and ridge to the peak of this 14er. The first half of this trail is the same for the trail of Mount Belford and Oxford. Had a little bit of everything and was very easy to follow the trail. Stay right at both trail sign junctions when in the meadow and be prepared for all the switchbacks!

Great trail, really enjoyable! Round trip 7 miles. Looking forward to hiking this one again! ❤️

Beautiful hike. Can be tough and very windy.

***One thing to note: the vertical rise and mileage on this page is wrong. The hike from this upper trailhead which requires 4WD to get to saves you some vertical rise but according to the maps at this upper trailhead, the total mileage out and back is 7.6. And the vertical rise is not a mere 1000 ft but 3970 ft.***

very demanding,coming down very had on knees,always stepping on or over rocks very few level spots beautiful at top will not do again too many better trails

this was my second 14er. Pretty easy compared to the other one. Trail is easy to follow. like some else said, the false summits are a bummer to see.

Great trail with many connecting trails. You could spend the entire day hiking in this area. The trees are turning which makes the hike even more beautiful.

Need 4x4 to get to the top trailhead. Wonderful hike, gorgeous views, a little bit of scrambling over rock required at the top. Arguably one of the prettiest 14er hikes I've done. Summit is small but 360 degree views are outstanding!
