Attention site users! On December 31, 2020, the company whose platform and hosting service we have used to build this site will discontinue their service. That means NO MORE SITE unless immediate action is taken. The ultimate goal will be to have the site rebuilt in another platform. In the interim, we plan to transfer this site to a "static" page where all the information will still be available but we will be unable to administrate the site. The ultimate goal will cost tens of thousands of dollars in professional costs. The immediate "static" solution will still cost several thousand. We are on retirement/SS income and do not have the personal resources to build this site again. To keep this site going, we may have to monetize it in some way such as required membership or allow advertising and you know how annoying that can be. So, if you have survived Covid-19 and still have steady income, please consider a donation in any amount now. For past contributors, thank you so much for doing so!
Peaks 9 & 10 above the Breckenridge Ski Area in the Tenmile Range offer easy Class 2 hiking that could make an easy family hike, depending on the vehicle you have to access this area. A 4WD with good clearance can make it all the way to about 12,400 feet where both summits can be knocked off readily in just a couple hours. Passenger vehicles with above average clearance can drive as far as the Peak 9 restaurant at 11,250 where your vehicle can be parked and walking can begin from there. This will add significant mileage and more elevation gain, but the two peaks could still be done as a half day hike that's mostly on high tundra terrain. The most difficult aspect of this hike will be locating FR 751, which is a little tricky to find.
