Ascent Trip Report

Had a little time to hike in the morning today, after working in CO this week. For Estes Cone, I set out from the East Longs Peak TH at 5:30am, following the E. Longs Peak Tr, the Eugenia Mine Tr and the Estes Cone Trail to the summit of Estes Cone. About 6 miles round trip. I didn't see anyone during my ascent, or at the summit of Estes Cone. I saw a few groups of hikers on these trails on my way down. After this, I drove into Estes Park and hiked Prospect Mtn.
