Runner Notes

This particular segment of trail is too steep and rocky to run, although everything below it can be run easily.

Description

This trail begins at Pt 13,800, an unnamed 13er which can be easily reached via ATV. It is the only singletrack portion of the Mt. Antero run. Cross a rocky ridge toward Mt. Antero. It's easiest to stay just to the right of ridge proper - it's flatter and less treacherous. Once across the ridge, continue up some class 2 talus for about 400 ft to reach Mt. Antero's fairly large summit. The views are slightly unique, as there's way more road than on any other Sawatch 14er.

Flora & Fauna

Due to high ATV traffic, there aren't many critters up here.
