"This is a great small-peak climb into the Indian Peaks Wilderness and Rocky Mountain National Park near Allenspark, with sweeping Continental Divide views. You can climb either Meadow Mountain or Saint Vrain Mountain, or just enjoy the spectacular panorama at the saddle. The trail travels along the RMNP border with superb views of Mount Meeker, Longs Peak, Chiefs Head Peak, and Wild Basin, as well as Twin Sisters and the plains sprawling to the east."

Very windy at the top, had to turn back when I reached the sign for the RMNP. Will try to make it to the summit next time when it is less windy.
