Overview

This is a difficult out and back trail to Mount Shavano in San Isabel National Forest.

Getting Started

Road is bumpy leading up to the trailhead but any vehicle should be fine as long as you watch for the larger pot holes. There is generous amounts of dispersed camping on the road up and shortly past the trailhead as well.

The peaks require some basic scrambling and route finding but virtually the entire trail is traveled enough to follow easily. Important to remember that you summit Shav, then Tab, and then you need to drop back down to summit Shav again in order to start descending. This can take a toll and this entire time is above tree line so be prepared.

    The fall colors were amazing along the first part of the hike and the views from the peaks were great.

Shavano and Tabeguache
Trail to tree line is rocky and lacks switchbacks so bring sturdy boots. Views on top both peaks are awesome particularly to the west from Tabeguache. Just know the climb back up Shavano from the saddle is tough and might I say dangerous if you come down with AMS so know when to turn around if you must. Fun challenging hike though! Also no fires for the 2018 season please. It is extremely dry.
