Ascent Trip ReportAwesome trip up the New Wheeler Peak trail. Thank you to those who worked so hard to make this trail. It's awesome!! Wonderful weather, great hike. Started around 8am - summit by 11am - 30 minutes on summit then back to parking lot at 1:30.
Hiked for an hour with 6 Big Horn Sheep (4 mommy's with 2 babies). Wonderful! Also, saw a bear run across the road on the drive to the trail head (off route 150).
