Lily Mountain is an ideal first ascent for beginning climbers and their parents. This 1000-foot climb requires some huffing ’n’ puffing, followed by a short but fun rock scramble to the summit. As in every good climb, views from the top are most rewarding. Predawn hikers may view a spectacular sunrise from the summit, plus enjoy a cool, solitary hike. A stop at the Lily Lake Visitor Center adds to everyone’s understanding of the terrain bordering the east side of Rocky Mountain National Park. The climb begins directly at the trailhead at the small parking area. The first 0.7 mile parallels the highway and ascends the ridge. Limber pines interspersed with imposing rock groups decorate the slope. Stop at the pines to let kids carefully bend the trees’ branches. Explain that “limber” is another word for “flexible.” Have them count the number of needles in a bundle. Limber pines are the only Colorado tree that bears five-needle bundles.
