The Grays Peak Trail is located west of Georgetown and south of Bakersville. A person can climb Grays and Torreys Peaks, two 14,000 foot peaks, in one day. These are two of the easiest fourteeners to climb. You also get some beautiful views of both sides of the Continental Divide. The trail is heavily used, especially on weekends.
It is best to start early and get down from the peaks before the afternoon thunderstorms start for the day. Snow stays in this area very late into spring. The trails aren't normally clear of snow until the end of June.
Directions from Idaho Springs: Follow I-70 west to Exit 221. Travel south up Stevens Gulch for 4 miles to the trailhead.
