Eagle Cliff Mountain

#155 von 212 Wegen in

Eagle Cliff Mountain ist ein 2.5 Meilen langer, wenig besuchter Hin- und Rückweg in der Nähe von Estes Park, Colorado. Er führt vorbei an herrlichen Aussichtspunkten und es gibt oftmals Wildtiere zu sehen. Aufgrund der Steigung und Distanz ist die Strecke als schwierig einzustufen. Hier kann hervorragend gewandert und ein Ausflug in die Natur unternommen werden. Die Route ist das ganze Jahr über zugänglich.

Entfernung: 2.5 miles Höhenunterschied: 1,135 feet Routentyp: Hin & zurück

From Estes Park, take US 36 west towards the RMNP Beaver Meadows Entrance. Continue on Hwy 66 (Tunnel Road). After a few miles you will see the YMCA entrance. Enter here, and go up the hill (Association Road). Take a right at the first stop sign (Pinecone), and go straight past Lower Cookout Rd. Eventually you will reach the Boone Family Mountain Center (restrooms inside). Park at the center, then backtrack on foot to Cookout Rd, and walk down the road. Shortly after passing the roadblock and turn for the day camp, you'll see a trail split off to the left, leading into the woods. Follow this trail to the "T", at the base of Eagle Cliff Mt. Then go off trail, and begin your ascent.

Not a real trail. Bushwhacking and some game trails.

This trail is amazing! This is by far the best hike within quick walking distance from the YMCA. The trail is rocky, overgrown, and sometimes you have to use your hands. In other words, super fun! There are multiple peaks. One peak has a great view of the river valley to the west. Another peak has an amazing overlook of Estes Park to the East. This particular peak is perfect for sunrise hikes. I would definitely recommend this hike to anyone staying at the YMCA.

Choose your own adventure (this is not 1 clearly defined trail, but rather a myriad of semi worn paths straight up the mountain) with a view that pays off.

A challenging trail for sure. The first half mile is well defined but has no trail markers. Then it’s a steep hike up the mountain all off trail. Once you get up through the trees and summit the view is worth it

I have completed this hike about 6 times over the past 12-years, most recently on 1/1/19. Starting point is at the YMCA of the Rockies' Boone Family Mountain Center, and the ending point is the scenic-overlook on the south-west side of the mountain (not the summit). This hike is mostly off-trail, and therefore open to modification, including summiting or looping, rather than out-and-backing. Despite being just 2 miles, this hike took 3 hours and 45 minutes, including a 30-40 minute stop at the top for pictures (definitely leave time for this) and a proposal :) <3 (she said yes!). This hike is at least hard, with about a 1000ft elevation gain in just 1 mile. The steepness may require you to use your hands a few times. Of the 6 times I've hiked this, I've fallen twice, once onto a yucca (ouch!) and once scraping my leg a little on a rock. To begin the hike, proceed on-foot down Lower Cookout Road, and join the well-marked Lower Cookout Trail, which will take you across two bridges (over Glacier Creek and the Big Thompson River). After crossing Glacier Creek, you will be in RMNP. When the trail comes to a "T" at the base of the mountain, this is when you leave the established trail. Essentially, look up and find your-own path of least resistance. CAUTION: Venturing too far east (right) leads you towards private homes and private property - this hike does NOT require you to access any private property, other than the YMCA where you start. The views are spectacular, and worth the trouble. Would recommend! However, I do not recommend attempting this hike without prior hiking experience, or going with someone who does. Using poles would be beneficial year-round. Our microspikes were a must-have given the snow on the ground.
