Description

Access to Torreys Peak trail begins from the Grays Peak Trail (Stevens Gulch Trailhead). Cross a well-maintained bridge and travel southwest, already near treeline at 11,259. The trail meanders along the south slopes of Kelso Mountain to Kelso Junction 1.85 miles in. The small trail on the right leads to Kelso Ridge and Torreys Peak. Continue straight on the main trail heading west of the ridge until reaching the upper slopes.

The trail reaches the Torreys Peak South Slope junction 2.8 miles in at 13,270. Head right to begin the Torreys Peak Trail which leads to the saddle between Grays and Torreys Peaks. Follow the Torreys Peak Trail along the south slope to the summit. Torreys Peak lies at 14,267'. Retrace your steps to return to the trailhead.
