3 Sisters: Evergreen Mountain Loop

  • Apr 20, 2013 · 9:30 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Due to weather conditions I dont want us to tear up the trails at Mathews Winters.  It will be very muddy and I like to preserve what nature has to offer us.

Three Sisters should have more snow.  I suggest winter hiking boots.  I will bring my grippers just in case, but usually find that I don't need them.

3 Sisters: Evergreen Mountain Loop

Distance: 6.5 mile loop
Elevation: 7,437 ft - 8,592 ft
Elevation Gain: 1,155 ft (net) 1,174 ft (cumulative)
Dogs: On leash only (Jefferson County Open Space

Moderate hike to more advanced.


Near the heart of Evergreen, Alderfer/Three Sisters Park abounds with stunning vistas, landmark rock formations, beautiful old stands ofBiker ALD Lebzelter ponderosa pine and the most trails per acre of any foothills park (nearly 15 miles on 770 acres).

Once a working ranch for cattle, horses and foxes, Alderfer/Three Sisters is now a park that offers a variety of experiences, from hikes across rolling terrain to challenging rides to the top of Evergreen Mountain. Climbers enjoy bouldering on rock formations near the south trailhead. Pads are encouraged. Fixed protection is not permitted.

“The Three Sisters” and “The Brother” are the landmarks of the terrain. Meadows burst with wildflowers in late spring/early summer. Birdlife includes turkey vultures, Cooper's hawks, red-shafted flickers, Stellar's jays, ravens and mountain bluebirds.

      Sounds good! Do you have other info? I can look it up.

      Hey Loree. Bergen peak is like a four hour hike. I'm thinking of pushing that one out a little further so we can build up to it:)

    Hi folks.
    So I'm looking forward to a hike, but feel that the latest snowfall may have us tearing up the trails at Mathews Winters as they will most likely be very muddy.
    I was thinking of going up higher into Evergreen to hike in the snow? Maybe not snowshoes, but a packed snow trail would be good.
    Any suggestions?
