The hike does start a little rough going up hill and does take about 3 hours to accomplish. Along the way you will see the mountains and valleys as you travel along the trail. In addition, you will see some of the old mining equipment...More

Round trip took us about 3 hours, with many stops for pictures and a quick lunch on a convenient fallen log. We had perfect weather, mixed sun and clouds with a light breeze. There were plenty of wildflowers on display, though prime season was the...More

Morning hike, 4th July weekend. Easy walk, mostly under trees until we got above the tree line. Flowers were nice and weather cooperated. No bugs ! Recommended.

This route begins in a large paved parking area on the east side of Route 91 between Interstate 70 and Leadville, though I am giving its address as Breckenridge since it is actually fairly close to Breck. But would be an interesting hike across the...More

We are no experts but the trail was pretty good and we saw lots of people of different abilities on this trail. A good one to start with to acclimate to the altitude. Not too steep of grade. At the end at 12,400 ft there...More

This is where we take visitors during the summer. It is a beautiful and comfortable climb with beautiful flowers and a few interesting ruins from the mining days. What you wear depends on the weather and temperature. In summer we just wear light clothing, and...More

This hike was relatively easy and the views did not disappoint. I would recommend hiking here. There are multiple trails once you get out in the open but since it's all open you shouldn't get lost.

This hike up to abandoned cabins at the timber line is easy for all ages. Most of the trail is a dirt road near a brook. For most the trail ends at an old settlement with several abandoned cabins right at the foot of rocky...More

Amazing views, great historic ruins. Easy hike if you are acclimated to the altitude. Don't miss the old tramway terminal/ore bun further up the valley on the north side past the cabins– a must see if you like photography and shooting old mining ruins.

By now it should be snow free; at least up to 10,000 feet.
