Ascent Trip ReportThis seems to be one of those mountains that is not particularly tall relative to some of the others around it, but gets a lot of attention due to its location. It stands just outside Frisco, CO, and near I-70, and has a trail to the top that gets a lot of traffic. We started at the trailhead parking lot on West Main Street just east of I-70. From here we followed a paved bike trail east and southeast to the start of the "Mount Royal Trail" and followed that to the summit area. The trail is fairly steep in some of the higher sections, with some loose rock. it's generally not hard to follow, though there are some trail junctions (in general, stay to the right).
