With all the snow that has fallen, access to the high country will be a challenge for a significant part of the summer.

Hassell Peak by the route we suggest is accessible to passenger vehicles with better-than-average clearance. With another short Front Range drive, the Class 2 hike is half on trail, then the other half is mostly on tundra terrain with embedded rock. Plenty of wildflower viewing makes this hike more interesting and the route takes you by the small Hassell Lake. Front Range views abound.
