The Chief Mountain trail on Chief Mountain in Arapaho National Forest gave us epic 360 views of the Rocky Mountains and everything else for miles and miles. I saw my first snow of the year up on the mountain - so peaceful and crisp, unlike New York City slush. Hanging with my friend, taking in the views and feeling the wind at the top made for one of the happiest moments of the year for me.
Hike Length: 3 miles roundtrip
Hike Time: It took us 4 hours because we sat at the top for a while and took a different route back.
Elevation Start: 10,740 ft (3273m)
Peak Elevation: 11,722 ft (3573m)
Temperature: 45-50F (7-10 C)
