Hard but worth every step. Long, hot at the top if you don't leave early. Late September was perfect.
This incredible hike and climb required improvising. Mt Massive is the 2nd highest peak in Colorado & 3rd highest in lower 48. Please click the link below to read my story.
So beautiful during July , tons of wildflowers!
Good trail, not difficult until treeline due to altitude.
