Ascent Trip Report

Easy hike from Trail Ridge, but be careful about what season it is. Apparently, they don't want people on the tundra...and the trails shown on the old topos are NOT supported by the NPS...in fact, they have signs at the old trailheads saying 'stay off.' But if you walk back from the Lava Cliffs parking area, you can get to some old paths...just be respectful and try and stay to the rock as much as possible...but here there isn't much.
