Grays Peak (14,270 ft) and Torreys Peak (14,267 ft) are two fourteeners that are often climbed in the same outing by traversing their connecting ridgeline. From their summits, expansive views open up east towards the Front Range and west towards Summit County. An attempt of Grays and Torreys is an excellent way to immerse oneself in our mountainous terrain for a full-day of adventure!
Our route approaches these peaks from the west side via Chihuahua Gulch, where hikers experience more solitude than on the standard route. There’s a great chance of spotting wildlife on this more challenging variation. This unique way to access the peaks incorporates more rock scrambling on a less established trail, with a stronger backcountry feel to the ascent. Longer and more physically and mentally intense than the standard trail, this route covers about 4400 feet of elevation gain and loss over an 11-mile round trip.
