    hiking

    Good hike, beautiful weather, but temp dropped 20 degrees shortly after summit (got a late 11:30 a.m. start). Great mix of mud (lots of mud), ice, slush and packed snow. Very glad to have my YakTrax. Fairly crowed as well, with many coming down from the trailhead at the the top of the mountain. Ruins are pretty cool.

    Great hike on a beautiful day! Arrived at 7:30 a.m. and was back at the trailhead at 12:45 (5:15 hours). App said 8.1 miles. FYI - I only did Grays. Tired and had to be back in Denver by 4:00. Ditto regarding the access road - it's VERY hairy. I came upon what looked like an impassable section of the road and decided to park 1 mile away. Then I saw another SUV carefully navigate it and decided to go for it (I have an AWD Hyundai Santa Fe). Made it successfully to the trail head and was able to park on the road 100 feet away. The last hour was somewhat brutal, but well worth it. About the same difficulty level as Bierstadt and Democrat. Incredible views - including looking down on the Breckenridge ski slopes from a distance. Some not-so-smart people on the trail - blasting music (no headphones), no warm weather gear (it felt like 25 degrees at the top), and behind a guy who was navigating the trail on the way down with his hands in his pockets - obviously freezing, but if he stumbled he would face plant. Don't be "that guy" :-).

    Awesome hike! Pretty much as described by the others. Last 400 feet or so is scrambling over very large rocks/boulders. You definitely need some good hiking gloves, and a way to strap your poles to your backpack, as you need your hands to navigate the rocks. Great views at the top, saw mountain goats. A man proposed at the top which made my day. More crowded that some other 14ers due to the ease of access - paved road - but all nice folks and easy to pass (or be passed).
