Estes Cone Hike in RMNP

The other day we went for a hike over the snowpacked trail to summit Estes Cone. Using Kahtoola Microspikes was essential to avoid slipping. There were some pure ice patches on the final 1/2 mile steep uphill section, but other than that, it was pretty easy walking over the firm snow. We saw absolutely nobody else for the entire duration, which wasn’t too surprising for a weekday in late November. Highly recommend this hike. Pictures below.
