Miles Rt Grade Elev. Gain High Point Terrain Drive Time

Enjoy this long but rewarding drive to the beautiful Indian Peaks Wilderness Area with Mt. Toll rising majestically above Blue Lake. The wildflowers, waterfalls, and lakes are unequaled anywhere. Please be sure to indicate if you can drive and how many seat belts you have. If you are a passenger, please be prepared to reimburse the drivers by chipping in on the gasoline expense. Thanks.
Bring two liters of water, snacks and lunch, rain gear, an extra layer of clothes, sunscreen, sunglasses and hiking boots. Bring a Rocky Mountain National Park pass or money to contribute to the park entrance fee. Additionally, bring money for gas for the driver.
Hike Difficulty

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. Please bring your Y lodge room number or cabin name at that time.
