Legault Mountain is a minor peak about 25 miles southwest of Denver. The short hike to the summit involves merely 1200 feet of elevation gain over a horizontal distance of around 3.5 miles. Much of the access to the peak is over a network of maintained trails in Meyer Ranch Park. The final 1/4 mile to the summit involves cross-country bushwhacking and optional, mild scrambling. While the approach is thickly forested, the foliage clears around the summit area, revealing nice views to the south and east, up the Turkey Creek drainage, and also to the west. Steep Berrian Mountain (9147') is a prominent landmark to the northwest.
