Hahns Peak Hill Climb
The Hahn's Peak Hill Climb is an 8 mile out and back trail run that starts at the Quarry Lot (FS550 + HWY 129) north of Hahns Peak Village, CO. The course runs 4 miles up to the top of Hahn's Peak and the fire lookout tower built in 1912. The final push to the summit is dominated by a loose rock and talus slope. Chutes will be marked to the summit to ensure a safe ascent and descent. Safety on this slippery slope is essential so please use caution and stay on the marked trail at all times. Racers will turnaround at the tower, following the trail 4 miles back down to the finish line.
Local time: 7:10 AM
The race has 2,200 ft. of elevation gain. It is a mix of jeep road, single track and talus slope. This is a challenge course that is not for the faint of heart! Don't forget to pose for your "jump shot" at the top of Hahn's Peak, and keep an eye out for the North Routt Yeti, who some locals swear is lurking in the woods!
