The most popular to the summit way is via Tabacco Lake. Once at the lake, just veer around the left side and basically go cross country until you come up the ridge. Conejos Peak is to your left and it's the high point on the ridge. Once you start hiking on the ridge you'll eventually run into a trail that'll take you to the top.

We only made it to tobacco lake. With the threat of a thunderstorm and some rain and hail, we decided to turn around. The views the whole way up were beautiful!

The hike to Tobacco Lake wasn't too bad. Saw deer and elk along the way. Awesome views and some decent snow banks still piled up (late June). The fishing in the lake wasn't so good. Saw Cut Throat but only managed to catch one. The continued hike to Conejos was much more challenging. The views from the top are a wonderful reward. Will make this hike again for sure.
