Ascent Trip Report

Note: this summit/wilderness HP is a bit tresspassy to obtain. Wether or not you think that’s worth it is your judgment call.
It should also be noted that you might want to take the road down instead of following my shortcuts.
C1 from Rattlesnake Arches Mee Canyon TH off N 16 1/2 Rd
You do not need a NP pass to go here if you tell the ranger you’re just driving through to get to Glade Park
I went on to run the Black Ridge Trail after since the TH is only less than half a mile away off Rimrock Drive. Trail baggin!
Although I’d run part of this trail before, it was blanketed in snow so it was nice to experience it in a different season. This trail is one of the lesser visited in Colorado National Monument & is 5.5 miles one-way for anyone interested. However, Liberty Cap starts at nearly the same TH and is way cooler.
