James Peak Trail - Winter Park, Colorado 2
The the goal within eyesight, you can follow the trail to the summit of James Peak near the resort town of Winter Park, Colorado. Rising 13,301’, this is ~ 8.5 mile round trip gaining several thousand vertical feet, this trail makes for a good day trip from either Winter Park (via Rollins Pass) or form Denver (via St. Mary’s Glacier). The views are outstanding and you’ll see relatively few trekkers, especially from this (the Winter Park) side. Photo © copyright by Rob Greebon.
