Summit 2 14ers in One Day!

Summiting Torrey's and Grays is a perfect adventure for someone wanting to get into 14ers. The trails are well marked and wide, and the views are out of this world gorgeous.

In a stunning 8 mile trek, you traverse through a beautiful valley, surrounded by jagged mountain cliffs, slowly climbing until the two peaks come into view. You can hear the stream, and the valley is quite serene. As the two peaks come into view, you may feel intimidated by the sheer height, but keep going! The views at the summit and the sense of accomplishment it certainly worth it!

Grays is full of long switchbacks, see the faint trail zig zagging up the mountain below.

This trail is extremely popular, you will most likely be sharing it with many other hikers. Below is a picture of hikers on the saddle between the peaks, looking at Torrey's.

Mountain Goats and marmots are the locals on the trail. Bring your camera for some great wildlife photography opportunities!

THINGS TO DO

Relax and Enjoy the View of Two 14ers!

There are plenty of spaces to pull off, relax, and enjoy the views!


Exercise

This is a great trail to push yourself, and get some real exercise in!


Class 3 Scrambling on Kelso Ridge

Experienced mountaineers/climbers will enjoy the Kelso Ridge route up Torrey's. It features some super fun class 3 scrambling and an exposed "knife's edge" near the summit. An unforgettable and exciting, less populated route to the summit. Again, only attempt this if prepared for class 3 scrambling and exposure. You can check out the details on that route on 14ers.com

Leave No Trace Bigfoot Sign
It is of the upmost importance that you always remember to take care of our precious outdoor spaces, and preserve them for future generations. Be as invisible as bigfoot and practice Leave No Trace Principles. For more info on how to be an environmentally conscious adventurer, click HERE!
GETTING THERE

The 3 mile road to the trailhead from I-70 is pretty rough and a vehicle with high clearance is certainly recommended. You can park at the lot right off I-70 and walk up, but that adds 6 miles rountrip and quite a bit of elevation gain to the trek.
