Empire-Republican Mountain Trailhead and Bard Creek Trailhead Professional Review and Guide

"Republican Mountain is best accessed by the Democrat and Republican Mountain four-wheel-drive road (the best way to hike the peaks in this section).

The Bard Creek Trail is slowly fading from existence but provides an interesting alternative to reach these peaks—which are some of the most overlooked in the Front Range. Fans of fourteeners can brag about hiking Columbia (not that Columbia), Democrat (not that Democrat), and Sherman (not that Sherman) in the same day."
