“A classic, easy-to-moderate road to an old fire tower above treeline, peak can be seen from Denver.”— Rick Blair
Follow the road up to the antennas and fire tower. Though you'll be navigating a road, this journey can still pack a punch. The grades are moderate and consistent from the parking area to the summit. There are amazing views of the Mt Evans area and the Indian peaks once you've reached the top.
For the second year (as of 2016) the Forest Service appears to be renting the fire tower for overnight stays, if you'd like to extend your stay.
