The Google map driving directions are deceptive as they do not lead to the trailhead for the main recording for this hike that is displayed at

Instead the directions lead to the trailhead for - which is a 7 mile hike . Our SUV could not go further.

Great route on Tr379 from gate below McReynolds reservoir. Trail hard to follow in spots with some cairns but follow track. Brings u into saddle btw two peaks; high Amalgre to left and south Amalgre (Baldy) to right....gorgeous views all way up and on top! Will do this again

This is one of my favorite hikes, 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!
