A popular peak hike providing views of the Indian Peaks and Boulder Head up Bluebell trail to Gregory canyon trailhead (there is a fee to park here). From here either way is fun, but clockwise is a little harder. Travel up Gregory canyon to the cabin with outhouses. From there take the trail up the north ridge to the peak. Enjoy the views on a clear day and head down when ready. For an extra workout, go back on Bluebell, otherwise head down the baseline trail to the trailhead.

There is a harder and longer section to the top which we took. It adds approx 0.4 miles and is much steeper. No dogs allowed on this section....take the shorter one if you have a dog.

My 14 year old dog was able to do this with many water and shade breaks. The beginning has a few places for dogs to get water, but be sure to bring a couple liters to share with the furry guys. Water is extremely important during the warmer months and it's easy to use up quickly!

Great hike, very quiet and peaceful area. Very hot though! Make sure to bring sunglasses, a hat, and sunscreen.

Great hike! Started around 9am and did not see too many people on the trail on the way up. By the time we reached the top around 11:30 it was pretty crowded.It was an easy to follow trail and the views from the backside of the mountain were the best part by far.
