Longs Peak Professional Review and Guide

"Many of the climbers who aspire to ascend all of Colorado’s fifty-plus “fourteeners” (mountains more than 14,000 feet tall) put off Longs Peak until last, reasonably assuming it will be the best."

An epic hike in Rocky Mountain National Park. It is tough and definitely not for the faint of heart! We hiked to Boulder Field on the first day and camped, then went to the summit. I loved this as a backpacking/overnight trip, but anyone who hikes this in one day is my hero. It is SO amazing.
