Loveland Pass

260 reviews

Beautiful hike! We loved every second. The views are on par with a 14er but much less crowded. Did this in about 4 hours with lots of stopping on the way up and a good 40 minutes enjoying the view at the top. The climb is steep, but fine if you give yourself enough breaks. The top was loose rock and gravel, so I would recommend hiking boots or good trail running shoes. The trailhead is very easy to get to and there was plenty of parking when we arrived at the Loveland Pass summit around 9:30 on a Friday. We didn’t see a sign for the trail, but it is on the east side of the pass. I would highly recommend this hike! One of my favorites I’ve done.
