Description

A very easy uphill on a well established trail. Access the trailhead from the end of Caribou Road, and begin your fairly mellow ascent. To begin, you'll follow a wide path that acts as a dirt road in the summer months. Just shy of a mile, you'll start to diverge from the road and start to more directly move toward the summit of Klondike Mountain.

Top of Klondike facing north, towards the Arapahoe Peaks. Head this way, ride the saddle down keeping left if you want to ascend the opposite ridge on Bald Mtn, veering right to go back into the drainage (skin track back)
