The Only Sawatch Range Climb in 2020

Updated: May 12, 2023

June 24, 2020

Quail Mountain (13,461 feet)

Route: route (West Ridge from Sheep Gulch)

6.67 miles; 3484 feet elevation gain

Total time: 4 hours 19 minutes

We camped the night before on the road leading to the trail head (390), which has plenty of campsites. We started around 5:30 am after a chaotic morning with a sick dog and a crate that needed cleaned. You start in the trees and climb gradually the entire way up. It is a lot of elevation gain throughout the hike, but nothing technical. It was an absolutely beautiful hike and we only saw one person all day. This is a mountain we will definitely be returning to.
