Note: There are no dogs allowed on the last mile **of the clockwise route**. If you want to take your dog to the summit ascend via the counterclockwise route or go clockwise and then use the E.M. Greenman Trail to cut across to the counterclockwise limb and ascend to the summit that way. A popular peak hike providing views of the Indian Peaks and Boulder. From Chautauqua take the Meadow Trail to the bridge at the Gregory Canyon Trailhead. (Parking Fees apply on weekends and holidays in the summer). From here either way is fun. Clockwise is a little steeper, but the uphill part is more in the shade and the views are refreshing on the way up. Go up Amphitheater, then upper Saddlerock, then EM Greenman to the peak. Enjoy the views on a clear day and head down the West Ridge Trail, to Ranger, to Gregory Canyon Trail, back to the bridge, then back Baseline Trail to Chautauqua. For an extra workout, go back on Bluebell-Baird, otherwise head down the baseline trail to the trailhead.Show more
