Mesa County High Point Trip Report
Date: July 22, 2000
I trekked out there on a 5 hour drive one way and bagged Leon Peak. I followed the directions from John
Mitchler and Dave Covill's book to get to the trailhead.
Road is paved the first 2.8 miles. At 8.9 miles turn right on Rd. 126 and go 2.8 miles to the campground.
Bear right at the billboard and park near the boat ramp. The trail is to the left of the ramp. The compass
really came in handy and the rocks were big. Coming down was no easier and I turned off the ridge too
early and ended up at the wrong reservoir, 1.2 miles to the west of the campground.
Time: 2:39 up and 2:35 down including the extra walk back.
