Hike a portion of the Continental Divide Trail up towards Black Peak. A very satisfying hike with stunning views from the southern summit of Black Peak at around 9,000 feet elevation. This trek is point-to-point so the total hike is 15 miles for an out and back hike starting from the Hwy 15 trailhead. The portion of the CDT extending past Black Peak is currently closed due to fire hazards. Check with park management for updates before hiking through the area. There are also signs and a map posted along the trail indicating the closure area.
