Ascent Trip Report

I was just driving into the Rockies, and it was getting late fast- I figured a quick peak was better than none, and this didn't disappoint - while trees blocked what otherwise would have been a great view of the Dillon Reservoir, there were plenty of other great views. The trail was well marked until the final right turn (where it broke away from the trail going to another peak (Peak One)), but it was brutally steep in places.

Also of note- this is one of a variety of easier summit hikes from a book called "Colorado Summit Hikes for Everyone" by Dave Muller.
