In 2016 I tried to hike Quandary Peak and ran out of gas around 13,500. That is when I decided to condition for high altitude (even though I live at 6000') and strengthen my legs. Since then I have climbed 5 14ers. Yesterday I went...More

This is a relatively easy mountain to climb. The trailhead is easy to access from Breakinridge. The key is to go early. You need to be on your way down by noon.

My daughter decided she wanted to climb her first 14-er for her 26th birthday. We started the climb at 5:15 am and arrived at the top just after 10:00 am. We took a lot of breaks, especially as we approached the top. The effort was...More

This is one of my favorite hikes. It is hard. Took me (age 33) about 7 hours and could have taken more. You will hike through snow so even on a hot day from warm cloths.

I've reviewed this attraction before, some years ago, but for the last several years I've noticed a sizable increase in the population of mountain goats that greets you along the way, and thought I should include some photos, which are attached to this review. (I...More

The trail is in pretty good shape. Running shoes should be OK.

Yes you can. It is terribly rocky for the last half up to the summit. Rocks are loose. So it is better with hard soles shoes but can absolutely be done in runners, just a bit harder on your feet.

If you are an experienced winter mountaineer and prepared for arctic weather conditions, then yes. (That's not an exaggeration) If you are a tourist I would stay away until the summer months.
