Climbed from the South/West Valley. Mt. 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. We chose this route thinking it would be a little easier and a less steep way to the top. It took us around 2 hours to reach the top, allowing us to cruise up there at a pretty steady pace.
