Report: Went with 6 seminarians. Some steep and rocky sections, but overall very easy. There is a clear view of the plains and the Air Force Academy at the top, and you can even see back to the Collegiates and Bison Peak areas. Excellent view of Pikes Peak also. The road is a little rough, but we made it with no problem using standard passenger cars. All in all a success for us...if you have a couple hours, give it a try. -Br. Daniel
