On Saturday morning, we met and headed out to Mount Greenhorn. Driving distance from the paved road to the ridge line Mount Greenhorn trailhead is about 24.9 miles, and only the last mile is rough, but is passable in a small car with low clearance.

We began hiking at about 1:10 pm and completed a loop hike via the trail on the way up and the old road on the way down. The hike to the summit and back was completed in under three hours. It was raining on the summit ridge and we heard thunder, but saw no lightning.
