Mount Alice Summit Trail
The Mount Alice hike is similar to the Longs Peak hike: a long, moderate, on-trail approach leads to a class 3 ascent via an exciting route. Unlike Longs, however, Alice doesn’t attract the masses—for most, it’s not a “glory peak.” The setting is beautiful and remote, a world apart from the rest of the park. Ascending the connecting ridge to Alice’s northeast ridge is a wonderful way to start the challenging ascent. Once on the ridge, the class 3 scrambling is steep but solid (it’s like an extended version of the scrambling on Pacific Peak). From the summit, you can return the way you came or make a loop down to Thunder Lake—a nice tour. After the exciting climb, you can further extend your trip by making an easy side trip to Ouzel Falls.
