Trail Length 9.4 miles round trip: Meadow View Trail to Bergen Peak Trail and Bergen Peak

Trail Time Approximately 3.5 to 4 hours

From the wooded, rather flat summit of Bergen Peak the views are somewhat obscured due to the trees, however from a vantage point just south of the actual summit there are nice views in all directions except the north. From this rocky view point you can see the peaks of the Mt. Evans massif, including Epaulet Mountain, Spalding Mountain, Mount Warren and Mount Evans as well as Chief and Squaw Mountains to the west. To the south Thunder Butte can be seem and Pikes Peak rears it head in the far distance. Mount Morrison, Denver and the plains can be seen to the east.

On the trail to Bergen's summit, which comes up from the east, then circles around to the north and finally up the western side of Bergen Peak, there is at least one spot were there is a view off to the north of Longs Peak and the peaks of both the Indian Peaks and James Peak Wilderness areas. Elk Meadows and the eastern slopes of Bergen Peak consist of open grasslands and meadows at the lower, less steep elevations. Higher elevations include open ponderosa pine forests where elk and deer can be found. Higher yet, on the steeper slopes are dense forests of douglas fir and scattered aspen groves. And in the highest elevations the slopes are dominated by lodge pole pine

    I have opened a 2nd Group for this hike so those on the Wait-List here can jump over to the 'Overflow' group for this and RSVP. We will take the same hike as Rob's but leave 15 min after his group.

    Would be wise to bring your snowshoes for this and determine at the Trail head whether or not Snowshoes are needed.

    IMO, anything more than 1-2 inches at the TH would warrant snowshoes since it only piles up more at you go higher.

    I am off the waiting list and attending the hike.

    Two qusestions:
    Is this a "snowshoe" hike? - guessing NOT
    Does anyone want to meet at Wooley Mammoth parking lot?

      Hi Dan! No, not enough depth for snowshoes - it will be a sloppy hike, though, so wear appropriate footwear(and a change of shoes for the restaurant is recommended)

    Does anyone want to carpool or meetup somewhere. I am in Superior close to Boulder and I will surely get lost on my own.

      Hi Dahlia, We can meetup somewhere. I will be driving from Boulder along 93. Do you want to meet at the park and ride at Coal Creek Canyon (SH72/SH93) or at Mammoth?
