Longs Peak should be a planned trip. It takes 5-6 hours round trip from the parking lot to a lovely alpine lake. You should bring food, drink and a camera. The views are amazing and it fun having pics to remember this medium hike, now...More

A great wild place on the front range. Not an easy feat due mostly to the elements. Plan very carefully. Do some training. Don't be surprised by not making it to the summit.
