Hiking Hawn Mountain

Hiking Hawn Mountain

Hiking groups are abundant in Telluride, Colorado. Earlier this week, I went with my family to join a local hiking group on the Hawn Mountain Ridge Loop Hike. The hike is located within Grey Head, and includes the spectacular Stairway to Heaven walkway, descending down a massive scree field.

The Stairway to Heaven walkway is a pleasure to hike down – it switch backs through a rugged scree field, providing stable, relatively even footing all the way down.
