    Hailey Martin reviewed Mount Evans and Mount Spalding Loop Trail

    Drove up from TX a few days before with my dog and spent a few days hiking between 11,000-13,000 to acclimate. Clocked this hike at 4.1 miles. Camped at Echo Lake and then started before 6am and hiked with the sunrise, ran into one person at the very beginning on their way down (I think they just went up to Spaudling), finished before 9am.
    The first mile was pretty intense, but once you reach Spaulding it's pretty steady. You start at 12,900 at Summit Lake and gain about 1,000 feet in a mile. My dog and I rested at Spaulding for a bit and ate some food to help with the elevation, and from there we had no troubles.
    The saddle was beautiful, as was the whole hike. After the saddle the ascend up Evans is pretty steady, we did miss the actual turn off for the summit and ended up just scrambling up some rocks on the side. Weather blew in right as we were about to summit and it was sleeting and a bit cloudy, but the views were still great! We had the summit all to ourselves. It was definitely cold and windy so we took some photos, embraced the moment and started our descend.
    The descend was pretty much straight down the mountain for almost a mile. Ran into a couple of people on their way up this route, but I am very happy we went the Spaulding-Evans route because the views were great!
    This was me and my dog's first 14er and it was a great experience! I definitely recommend this hike as a first summit if you are looking for an easier one. Can't wait to tackle more!

    Drove up from TX two days before this hike with my dog. Got to the trailhead midday on a Sunday and made it to the lake early evening. Had the lake to ourselves and had a wonderful night, a bit cold since you camp at over 11,000ft. Took our time in the morning and made it back to camp around 12. Saw 1 person the entire hike, but when we first got there Sunday afternoon the parking lot was packed. Weekdays are definitely the time to go!

    The first day's elevation gain was intense but doable (even coming from sea level). Beautiful hike with a variety of views. The second day we pretty much descended the whole time so it was pretty easy. Awesome, laid back weekend hike with plenty of available water!

    Me and my pup's first CO trail after driving up from TX the day before. The trail itself was not difficult, but we definitely felt the elevation! Ended up going past where the trail actually ended up to the top for some great views. The trail is pretty and well maintained, wonderful morning hike.
