    Route Description for Tabeguache Peak via Jennings Creek Hike

    The Tabeguache Peak via Jennings Creek Hike is an exciting expedition in the Sawatch Mountain Range. With no explicit trail, this path warrants navigation and dedication. We highly suggest using the trail GPS to safely navigate the terrain and be sure to be prepared in case of an emergency. Pack plenty of water, wear layers and consider trekking poles and microspikes in the fall and winter months. Additionally, be sure to check the forecast prior to your ascent and summit before noon to mitigate the chances of getting caught in an afternoon storm. Though dogs are permitted, there is some rocky terrain that requires bouldering and scrambling near the peak that may not be manageable by your pup.

    Begin your journey along the Tabeguache Peak via Jennings Creek Hike from the trailhead. From here, track north along the unmarked trail, following the curves of Jennings Creek. Soon after your departure, the terrain will become exposed, guiding adventurers through a lush alpine tundra. Hike up the gully, and you will eventually ridge the saddle. From here, you will notice Carbonate Mountain on your left. Veer right and hike east along the exposed and increasingly rocky ridge.

    Let the expansive mountain views motivate you as you scramble up the scree to the summit of Tabeguache Peak. Revel in your accomplishment and the 360-degree panoramic views of the neighboring snow-capped Sawatch Peaks. When you are rested and rehydrated, simply retrace your footing to the best of your abilities all the way back to the trailhead.
