Hahns Peak, Farwell Mountain Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Outstanding views from both Hahns Peak and Farwell Mountain on a clear day. The road up Hahns Peak does not go all the way to top, but the views are still outstanding. Colorful seasonal wildflowers along route. Many original cabins remain in quaint Hahns Peak Village. All are privately owned and occupied, but are nonetheless very photogenic. Numerous narrow mining roads make this a great area for ATVs. Rocky and steep in places but no major obstacles along the route described here.
Many old mining roads to explore with unknown difficulty ratings. Easy to get lost if you get off the main route. Shelf road going up Hahns Peak is very narrow and dead ends where it is difficult to turn around. Best to stop at switchback below end of road. Lower portion of F.S. 409, coming down from Farwell Mountain, is muddy and slick when wet. This route is best done on a dry day. Suitable for most stock, high-clearance, 4-wheel-drive SUVs."
