This is one of my favorite hiked, but I start from either on bottom of FSR 379 at Old Stage Road, or drive up 379 to trail heads above Frosty's. You need a high clearance vehicle and 4WD though. You have a choice of either north summit (highest), or south summit or antenna farm. In any case, it's an amazing view to the backcountry! Check out the mine over in Cripple Creek area from the summits, and views to the Sangre de Cristos. I love this hike, so serene too!
Hiked from gold camp road up 379 to frosty park then 379 to trail. Great views at the top-- pikes peak, reservoirs , mt rosa... Even saw the cog going up pikes peak .
