Description

Take the Glacier Gorge Trail from inside RMNP. Once this ends, boot or skin up the Trough, connecting with the Keyhole route to the summit of Long's.

From the summit, ski down the homestretch, across the narrows, and finally into the Trough. Reconnect with the Glacier Gorge Trail to exit.
