Mt Sniktau & Grizzly Peak

Hiking in Loveland Pass

Accessible from the Loveland Pass parking lot, the short, 2-mile jaunt to Mt Sniktau (13,234ft) is a relatively easy hike and a good way to experience the thrill of hiking above the tree line without having to work (too much) for it. It can get pretty windy up here, so dress appropriately.

If you barely broke a sweat on the way up, extend your day by following the ridge back south to Grizzly Peak (13,427ft), which ends with an exhilarating 45° scramble. From here the ridgeline continues to the fourteeners Torreys and Grays, just beyond. All told, the Loveland-Sniktau-Grizzly traverse is 7.5 miles round-trip.
