Route Description for Limber Pine Trail
The Limber Pine Trail does not disappoint. As you traverse the diverse terrain you will be rewarded with impressive vistas of the campers that dot the meadow landscape below and the snow-dusted peaks in the above. This trail is a wonderful introductory excursion to summit hikes in the Front Range. Climb up the gradual grade up to the unique granite spires atop Krueger Rock. If you venture this trail in the late autumn or winter, make sure to wear microspikes to grip the slippery, rocky terrain. Note this area is subject to wildlife closures, check the Larmier website and trailhead bulletin for announcements.
Begin your journey along the Limber Pine Trail from the trailhead. Track northwest up the path and pass the Hermit’s Hallow Campground. Continue along the Limber Pine trail as it weaves between meadowlands and aspen groves. As you trek along the path it will become increasingly steep as you near Kruger Rock. Enjoy the mountainous vistas from the exposed sections of the path and notice campers below. Soon you will encounter a junction. Stay right on the Limber Pine Trail and you will have to ascend the rocky terrain to the summit of Kreuger Rock. Navigate the rocky switchbacks up to the summit of Kreuger Rock.
Admire the unique mountain top. Explore the granite spires and canyons that compose the mountain and enjoy the expansive views of the wilderness below. When you are through adventuring the rocky summit, backtrack along the path all the way to the trailhead.
