Parkview Mountain - 5/05/09 5 Years, 3 Months ago  
Access from Fort Collins, CO:
CO 14 West
CO 125 South to the second road after Willow Creek Pass on the west side of CO 125
Drive Time: ~2:20 h

Parkview Mountain:
Evan, Michelle and I skinned up the road, cutting many switchbacks, to the Continental Divide Trail, then abandoned the trail for a safer ascent route up the east ridge since the snow was wet from failing to freeze overnight. We followed the ridge to the summit. Within minutes of reaching the summit we were enveloped by clouds and visibility was greatly reduced. We descended our ascent route finding the best snow on the east ridge.
Elevation: ~2800
Distance: ~8 miles
Time: ~4 h
