Mount Bethel the very prominent mountain that pops up right before you reach the tunnel heading west on I-70. It was a great hike with amazing views! Since it is not a very well known peak, there is no real trail to the top.

The trail is minimally developed due to the relatively low traffic. At times the trail is there and at other times you have to make your own trail. For my son and me that was part of the charm. After seeing two people early on, we had the hike to ourselves.

The views once over the timberline are well worth the hike. For us this was a good warm up hike.
