did this 3 days after acclimating on mount royal. don't let the 4 downed trees near the beginning stop you. this is steep in places (poles needed for the decent!!!), but near the summit it opens up to beautiful open vistas. you'll pass a antenna or satellite building, a large patch of snow(june25 2018) then the trail appears to abruptly end. the peak has no victory signs.. just go to the top after the trail ends. that's it. very nice and a killer workout!

Attempted, but got blocked by Snow about 3/4 of a mile up. Saving for later in the season. Cool abandoned cabins along the stretch.

The trail conditions up to Mount Royal were perfectly dry but very steep with few switch backs. Breathtaking views at Mount Royal. However the trail conditions got much worse very quickly heading up to mount Victoria. We turned back with about half a mile to reach mount Victoria, never mind reaching Peak 1. The trail was so steep and icy that we could not safely continue. I would definitely go back to see the views at Mount Royal.

There's a reason why this is listed by some as one of the hardest trails in summit county. We did not make it up to Peak 1 because of impending storms, but the hike up from Mt royal to Victoria was brutal. Poles would definitely have helped on the way down! Views are incredible from the top of Victoria and I'm sure they would be even more so from the top of 1.

Payoff is a nice overlook of Frisco and Lake Dillon. It goes up by the way... and up. Mt Royal is half way; Peak One is another half of whatever it took you to get to Victoria; if it took 90 minutes to here, another 45 to the summit/ 120 minutes, then 60 to the summit.

Quick, just out of town hike that's quiet and scenic. Three plus options on trails. I took Crystal Butte and it was a beaut.

Plenty of the trail is still covered, and there's a good section of snow that you have to walk across to get to the antenna building, and another good chunk up to the real peak. The snow is hard enough to walk on most, with very little postholing. Easier to come down the snow sections than the trail, a couple good sections you can slide down safely if you have waterproof pants.

Very tough trail - both up and down. Continue past the station on Mt Victoria to reach the actual peak. Fabulous views!!!
