Great 14er! I brought my dog (50 lbs, mixed breed, quite agile) and this was her 9th 14er. She did fine but it’s not the most dog friendly because of some bouldering and general rockiness throughout.

Gorgeous, comfortably moderate hike off of an extremely primitive road. The lakes at the top are crystal clear! Make sure your vehicle has some clearance and AWD if you’re making the trek out to this trailhead.

Beautiful hike and definitely worth the view at the top. Dogs did great too. Get going early as we had heavy traffic both ways starting a little before 7am.

HikingGreat!

This was a pretty enjoyable hike. Definitely challenging. It makes sense to do Oxford and Belford together, but it is definitely a real challenge going back up towards Belford after Oxford. That climb is no joke. We decided take the long path around which was definitely the right decision for my knees. It’s an enjoyable path down, right until the trails combine again and it’s a tough descent back to the starting point (especially with 2 dogs).

We left the 4wd trailhead at 710, a bit behind schedule. 6am is probably your best bet to miss the heavy traffic on the way back down. Beautiful hike, difficult but doable at a steady pace. You'll want poles at least for the hard Scrabble back down from the top.

Awesome trail but one of the hardest 14ers I’ve done thus far because of elevation gain. Backpacked in and camped overnight near the river on a flat area about 1.5 miles into the trail. Wouldn’t recommend for beginners/children.

Strenuous trail. Don’t let the mileage fool you as there is 1000ft of vertical gain per mile. If you hike the 14ers regularly this will be less of a challenge than some dt class2 status. Coming from low altitudes plan at least a day or more acclimation. If you are not a pro plan 1-1.25 miles per hour average and that’ll give plenty of time for breaks in the basin to soak in the beauty and at the summit for photos. Plan to be below the trees by 1 to reduce risk of lightning strikes. From the basin up it’s very strenuous. The steps out of the basin and the switch backs through the top are tough(if you consider yourself a moderate vs pro). As many reviews state this trail may be barely a 14er but the views are unbeatable. Nothing man made can be seen in any direction. While in the summit a bomber flew through the valley below those of us at the summit at that moment. Put it on your list, get in shape carry plenty of water and snacks to replenish your muscles. Dried fruit gels or something w high carb count. You’ll be glad you did. Coming from 700 ft elevation after 1.5 days acclimation we did it w long breaks in the basin and at the summit in 6:40. Not trying to set any records and taking lots of photos along the way.

HikingGreat!

Arrived at 8am yesterday (Monday) and we were the only people there the entire day. The two freezing cold river crossings is a fun way to start the trail. I just took my shoes off but would have loved my chacos or a pair water shoes for convenience. First mile is steep in the trees then it levels out for some excellent views just below tree line with easier hiking. I decided to cut right and head to Tabor Lake, get’s steep again after the cairn but it only takes a little less than an hour and is WORTH it. So many wildflowers! Still can’t believe we had this whole place to ourselves, highly recommend it to get away from the Aspen crowds. The dirt road was not terrible but I was happy to have my subaru. I dragged my old man with me so we stopped a bunch but took us 5 hours round trip with relaxing for a while at the lake!

Very difficult trail due to the elevation gain. The trail itself was in pretty good shape, especially for the amount of traffic on it. Exceptionally amazing views. We saw one dog on the trail and he seemed to handle it well. The descent was slippery in some places and we had a couple falls but no injuries.

Beautiful trail that is much nicer compared to some of the other 14ers. It’s a steep journey but there is no scrambling or climbing involved. I did not do the loop down, but I sure wish that I had! Climbing back over Belford is mentally taxing.

HikingGreat!

Hiked this on 8/2. Beautiful scenery once you get above treeline. Our favorite of the 6 fourteeners that we've done so far! Really easy trail to follow even in the dark. Trail is moderately steep, with a flat section at the beautiful alpine meadow before the final climb, but very manageable with the switchbacks. We started out at 5AM, and glad that we didn't start later. Only a half dozen folks at the summit at 8AM, but a constant stream of hikers coming up as we descended (=busy). Quite a few dogs on the trail: great trail for them with no sharp rocks and no aggressive rock hopping. The road to the 4WD trailhead is pretty narrow (esp. trees), but I saw a Ram 2500 up there. The last "Mudhole!? Slimy!? My home this is!" is fairly deep, but there were two late, model Outbacks that made it to the 4WD trailhead. Zero issues with our stock 4Runner TRD.

HikingGreat!

Great trail that begins in a beautiful river valley. I walked up the 4wd road starting at about 8am. The trail begins with a bunch of switchbacks through a heavily wooded forest, then opens up to high alpine meadow. You can see exactly where you’re going which makes it feel a little easier than other 14ers. No false ascents, just a bunch of climbing up switchbacks. Easy places to rest along the way and esp at the top before doing a final climb through the boulders. Gorgeous views across to 3 Apostles, Lake Anne, and all around.

BackpackingGreat!Rocky

Backpacked the first 2 miles and camped in the gulch. Highly recommend a base camp around the treeline and rising early if you want to hit all three 14ers in one go. Switchbacks from the parking area are pretty hardy but, come on, we're all hikers here. Get up there! Missouri Mountain itself is a great hike and will return to this spot for its beauty. Once on ridge, watch your step as some spots have a slight pitch with scree. Poles will help. Nothing too dangerous.
