“Huffers Hill” Dedicated At Rocky Mountain National Park
The Alpine Ridge Trail, commonly referred to as “Huffers Hill,” across from the Alpine Visitor Center, had been closed since 2010 for major reconstruction. The condition of the trail had significantly deteriorated resulting in erosion around the log steps and unlevel stepping surfaces, contributing to safety concerns and resource impacts to the tundra.
This popular trail climbs over 200 feet, has steep grades, and provides incredible views. During the dedication Vaughn Baker commented on the great work by the trail crew and vegetation crew on this project mentioning this is one of the easiest 12,000 foot summits in the state of Colorado!
