A relatively easy approach with awesome views at the top.

Description

The trail climbs 1.4 miles, then enters Colorado State Forest State Park before climbing an additional half mile to the pass. From here there are magnificent views of North Park to the west, Neota Wilderness to the south, and Rawah Wilderness to the north.

At the boundary line between Roosevelt National Forest and Colorado State Forest State Park, there are the remains of a historic log cabin that was built around 1900. The trail is in a sub-alpine are with large sub-alpine fir and Engelmann spruce. The Montgomery Pass trailhead accommodates approximately 55 vehicles, and will be fairly full on weekends, especially following fresh snowfall.
