Teller County High Point Trip Report
Date: July 28, 1984
We started from The Crags campground west of Pikes Peak at 7:30 am.
After a short distance be watchful for a turn northwards in the trail and for a side
valley coming down from the east. At that point leave the trail and bushwhack into
the side canyon. After a short distance up the side canyon we found the old logging road
that goes up the valley, and we followed it to timberline. A little higher we topped
out of the valley and onto ridges and plateau of the Pikes Peak massif.
We quickly found a spur road that passes south of the Teller county HP and then joins
the toll-road, then climbed the knob that is the HP of Teller county.
We continued on, following the route of the toll-road.
The sky turned ugly and we got on top of Pikes Peak at about noon amid
clouds and thunderclaps.
