Stevens Gulch is by far the most popular trailhead along I-70. On a summer weekend, the parking lot often fills by 6 a.m. with vehicles. By 8 a.m., the access road is lined with parked vehicles. Grays and Torreys Peaks, two 14,000-foot summits, are the feature attractions. They have very well-maintained trails, modest mileage, and spectacular views. Not to be missed are Mount Edwards and Kelso Mountain, also accessible from this area. Kelso Ridge on Torreys Peak may be the best Class 3 ridge scramble in the Front Range. Baker Mountain out of Grizzly Gulch is only for those who love steep, off-trail hikes.
