A dirt road climb to Amalgre North Peak.

Allen Tanner

Overview

Description

This is a brutal climb, above 12,000 ft, with lots of loose Pike's gravel, scree, and steep grades. But the views are worth it!

From FS Road 379A, the trail heads north. The first 0.7 miles is ride-able, but after this, multiple hike-a-bike sections exist as the grade steepens, the gravel piles deepen, and rocks line the trail. Not really much of a road as the map shows.

A small ride-able section picks up between the 0.9 and 1.2-mile marks, winding between large Pike's granite boulders.

The last hill up to the summit is a lung-burner, and the last 100 ft of altitude feels more like 500 ft.

The top of the peak levels and multiple boulders surround a radio antenna, providing perfect places to sit, catch your breath, and enjoy the 360-degree views.

Pikes Peak is to the north, Cheyenne Canyon to the east, several high altitude reservoirs and Cripple Creak to the west, and the Almagre basin to the south.

Well worth the climb!
