Ascent Trip ReportI think we might have summited this mighty peak 18 years ago on my last visit to Mesa Verde but I wasn't sure so had to return with the children.
A near drive-up; just a short walk of 150 metres or so each way from the car park up the paved path to the benchmark and fire lookout cabin. Achieved between a splendid meal of tortilla wraps at the National Park café and returning to the Morefield Campground (which in turn was one of the finer National Park campgrounds on our summer tour of the West). Saw a fire on the mesa to the east so the location was appropriate and it's a lovely spot from which to watch the sunset.
