Detailed Trail Descriptions from Our Guidebooks

Craig R. Carey
"From the lower La Cumbre Peak vista point, this route follows a thin spur trail—well cleared by crews defending against the 2009 Jesusita Fire—to the rock outcrops that form Cathedral Peak. Give yourself plenty of time to make the trip, whatever route you choose."
