Mount Irving Hale
Enjoy an extraordinary peek into a wild and remote corner of the Indian Peaks Wilderness. Colonel Irving Hale was Colorado's first graduate from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, New York. Camp Hale, northwest of Leadville, and the peak at the terminus of this hike are named in his honor. This route utilizes the seldom-used Roaring Fork Trail to a saddle, known as the Hale Divide, and then a direct, off-trail ascent of the ridge to the south. From the summit, you get an extraordinary, birds-eye look into a wild and remote corner of the Indian Peaks Wilderness, as well as into Rocky Mountain National Park.
