Peak 1 and summits beyond make up the very best extended Class 3 ridge scramble along I-70. It’s a solid workout to reach Peak 1 and the traverse over to Peak 4 requires good route-finding. Views down to Lake Dillon to the east and Copper Mountain to the west will linger in your memory long after you’ve left the high mountains. Connecting as a point-to-point to Miners Creek is an excellent, sturdy day hike. Other point-to-point options include traversing to the Far East Trailhead via the Colorado Trail or running the Tenmile Ridge to Breckenridge. Of course, out-and-backs to Peak 1 are fun, and if you don’t have two vehicles, looping these peaks is still possible.
