Mount Elbert via Mt. Elbert Northeast Ridge
This trail goes by Emerald Lake.
If the parking lot at the base of the trail is full, you can continue up the road to a second lot. There are also a number of pull-offs before and after the trailhead.
It is recommended to start this hike as early as possible to be safe in case an afternoon storm rolls in.
This is a difficult hike, and children, especially those not acclimated to the elevation may struggle. 4/10
