Description

A nice moderate run in the front range. From Glenn Alps, head to Powerline Pass Trail and take a right. A few hundred yards down, take left at the sign for the Williwaw Lakes and O'Malley Peak trails. Follow signs for O'Malley peak. Climbs the steep gully and take a left at the top to gain the ridgeline.

Follow the sometimes vague ridgeline trail over a few false summits to the peak. Notes: This trail does require some light scrambling in places to gain the summit. This trail can be done in winter but does require general mountaineering skills and avalanche awareness.
