Specimen Mountain Trail

Specimen Mountain Trail

This beautiful hike climbs through thick forest and tops out at the crater, just above treeline. It is illegal to climb to the actual peak because it is a wildlife protection area. But the hike to the crater offers spectacular views of Rocky Mountain National Park and the Never Summer Wilderness.
