The best hike I’ve ever done after years of admiring this mountain from the ground in Pagosa Springs. Not for the faint of heart - not the off road drive to find the unmarked trail nor the strenuous back half of the hike when you’re hiking a steep narrow path flanked by precipitous drips. But it’s SO worth it. Incredible 360 panoramic views once you break the tree line and a rewarding bottle of names for those who reach the true Pagosa summit. (Beware the 2-3 false summit sighting before the real one). Difficult several hours hike but definitely doable if you’re in pretty decent shape.

Steep, challenging hike! Not for the faint of heart climbing up the ridgeline, poles were essential. Very steep trail as described with lots of loose rock and trees/logs to climb over. We made it halfway up the 4WD road and had to park along side as the terrain is ROUGH. Not many places to bail out along the road. Hiked up the rest of the road (-1 hr from car to trailhead). We made it to the summit in 2 hrs and back to trailhead 1 hr 15 min. Great views if you’re not too focused on not falling off the mountain! Good luck, make sure you have a lot of clearance in your vehicle/someone who has driven up to trailhead if you opt for that route.
