“A beautiful alpine singletrack with a scree scramble to the summit of the East Spanish Peak.”— Victor Mariano
Once at timberline, the trail is only marked by cairns. The track follows the ridge line on a scree field with large volcanic stones with a steep climb to the summit. The views are incredible. Especially looking west toward the sister peak (West Spanish Peak) and the Sangre de Cristo Mountain Range just beyond. Also visible is Greenhorn Mountain and Pikes Peak to the north and Fisher's Peak to the south. The view to the east is the Colorado prairie as far as the eye can see.
