Lone Eagle Peak

Trailhead: Monarch Lake Trailhead

Roundtrip: just about 15 miles roundtrip


Lone Eagle Peak. One of Colorado's most iconic locations. We made it. 

I had bought our permit to backpack out to this iconic location about a month in advance. I had no clue what we were signing up for - not a bit. But it was worth it. The most we had backpacked before this trip was 2 miles in, onto a beach. In Washington. This was different. This was 7.4 miles into the Colorado backcountry, with the hot summer sun, steep uphills and bull moose grazing about. This was the real deal. I can't wait to do it again.
