7 D 2420 11482 C Short

Enjoy this beautiful hike with a challenging bushwhack from the North Longs Pk trail up a rocky fin to get to the narrow summit (11482') overlooking Mills Lake. Good hiking boots help with the scramble up and down the talus slope on the final approach.
Bring two liters of water, snacks, lunch, rain gear, an extra layer of clothes, hat, gloves, sunscreen, sunglasses and hiking boots. Bring a Rocky Mountain National Park pass or money to contribute to the park entrance fee. Additionally, bring money to chip in for gas for the driver.
Hike Difficulty
A = Most Difficult
B = Challenging
C = Harder
D = Hard
E = More Moderate
F = Moderate
G = Easy
H = Easiest

To meet the prerequisite for A-D hikes, you must have completed without difficulty a YMCA of the Rockies (Hikemaster-lead) hike of no more than two grades lower within two weeks before the hike. This means a C hike is the prerequisite for an A hike; a D hike is a prerequisite for B hike; an E hike is a prerequisite for a C hike, and an F hike meets the requirements for a D hike.

Hikes graded A-D must have three guests, and hikes graded E-H must have two guests to go. This is for safety reasons. Hikes will be canceled if too few guests sign up.

A variety of circumstances may change the schedule of this hike. It is imperative that all hikers check in at the Mountain Center hiking desk (Base Camp) no later than 5 pm the day before the hike. If your hike is scheduled to leave before Mountain Center open hours, please enter through the side door on the north side of the building.
