One of Colorado's 14ers. Great, easy to follow trail. Need 4x4 to get to the top trailhead.

Wonderful trail! Well maintained, with a great variety of scenery. Surrounded by trees at the beginning (gets steep there, but don't give up!) Then you reach a meadow with beautiful flowers and marmots above treeline. Rock field at the top is challenging and steep, but SO worth it at the top. Wonderful hike!

We got a mid morning start and ran into an early afternoon lighting storm. The storm came in from the west and horseshoed around us we were attempting to take shelter on the easterly shoulder below the final summit approach. Lightning zapped every lower peak around us and then moved on. Be smarter than us and start early enough to be off the summit by early afternoon. Great mountain!

a crazy day: we had a 2 wheel drive and can't make it all the way to the trail head of La Plata peak, so we hitchhiked and ride with a truck...then ended at this trailhead. It's mid of July and the peak of wildflower season, all the flowers are so out of control! then we hiked all the way back to the car and I went to a wedding in denver dancing till midnihgt

Need 4x4 to get to the top trailhead. Wonderful hike, gorgeous views, a little bit of scrambling over rock required at the top. Arguably one of the prettiest 14er hikes I've done. Summit is small but 360 degree views are outstanding!

Bring your oxygen tank! This was the toughest, most rewarding hike I have ever done. The views are astonishing up there. There's wine and cheese at the top!
