Hallett Peak (RMNP)

Hallett Peak

This is probably the second most popular peak in RMNP (after Longs Peak). This peak is located on the Continental Divide, so great views all around. The pace will be from 2.5 to 3 mph so this is for experienced hikers only.

Trail Details

Starting Elevation: 9475'
Elevation at peak: 12,713'
Elevation Gain: +3,238' net elevation gain (+3,375' total roundtrip elevation gain)
Difficulty: Moderately Strenuous
Distance: 10 miles round trip.
Dogs: No

Weather is unpredictable at these elevations, be prepared for anything.

Carpool Location

We will meet at the park-n-ride at 88th and Sheridan at 7:00. I expect to be at the north end of the lot. Look for my red SUV. We will carpool to the free shuttle parking lot in RMNP (across from Glacier Basin) and ride the shuttle to the Bear Lake trailhead. Those persons up north can meet us at the shuttle lot around 8:30--just be sure to let me know if you do not intend to meet at the carpool location. The free shuttle is inside RMNP, so someone from each vehicle will need to have a park pass.

Additional Terms and Conditions

You are responsible for knowing where the carpool location and the trailhead are and getting there on time. You are responsible for researching the trail and knowing your own limits. You are responsible for dressing appropriately and bringing the necessary gear, water and snacks. This trip--as are all trips with this group unless otherwise noted--is an all day outing, do not sign up if you have other obligations that afternoon. The pace will be on the faster side, and everyone is expected to keep up; you will need to be in good shape to do this trip. It is considered poor etiquette to cancel at the last minute; any cancellation within 24 hours of the start of this meetup for any reason will be treated as a no-show.

This is a participate at your own risk event.

    hello, I might do a solo trip this Monday. I would appreciate all the tips I can get. I would be starting at 6, ans sunrise is at 7.20. I would say I would be around 4 miles from trailhead by that time. I would appreciate specific info about how full of trees this part is, I mean if there is a bear lurking here will I be able to see it within enough time margin to run away.

    Great hike! OVer 20 people and I don't think we were ever more than a minute spread out on the mountain. Great job of keeping everyone together, but I don't think anyone felt like we were going slow. The rest breaks were greatly appreciated.
