North Longs Peak Trail Professional Review and Guide

"This trail is lightly used, a surprise given the unique terrain and beautiful views. The first mile or so to the Boulder Brook Trail intersection offers superb views of Glacier Gorge, Flattop and Hallet peaks, the Mummies, and the entire valley on the return.

This trail can also be used for climbs of Storm Peak, Mt. Lady Washington, and even Longs Peak if you want to avoid the crowds of the main Longs Peak Trail and don’t mind the extra distance."
