Ascent Trip Report

Drive up the trail ridge road and pull off at Rock Cut. (Should be petty obvious..biggest pull out with 2 bathrooms after the visitor center at 11,796 feet). Once at the trail head, start up the paved trail. Now there are 10 rock piles or so. I believe the summit to be the 6th rock pile up the trail. (it is the fist one that is right along the side of the trail on the right). As I am not 100% sure I stood on the top of all of them but that one appeared to be the highest..left my gps at the lodge -_-. I do know for sure that the very farthest one is Toll Memorial Lookout as it has a plac saying so. Its about 15-30 minutes round trip and .5 miles RT
