“Summit two 14ers on the Continental Divide along an alpine lollipop loop close to Denver”— Mike Langenkamp
The trail reaches the Torreys Peak South Slope junction 2.8 miles in at 13,270. Heading right leads to the saddle between Grays and Torreys Peak. When running both peaks in one day, most travel in a clockwise direction, running up Grays Peak first. To do so, turn left at the junction to continue to Grays Peak up talus slopes. The trail traverses across the north slope and begins a series of switchbacks at 13,840. The trail turns southeast just before the final pitch to the summit (14,270), 3.75 miles from the trailhead.
From the summit of Grays Peak, Torreys Peak is less than a mile away. Descend the North Ridge of Grays toward Torreys Peak. Follow the trail through tight switchbacks for .40 miles to the trail junction with the Torreys Peak Trail. The saddle between Grays and Torreys is a short distance ahead. Follow the Torreys Peak Trail along the south slope to the summit. Torreys Peak lies at 14,267 and is 4.6 miles in when doing both peaks.
To return to the trailhead, descend to the Grays-Torreys saddle again, traverse across the North Slopes of Grays to join the Grays Peak Trail. Descend the Grays Peak Trail to the trailhead.
