Description - This is a hike up Estes Cone. You start at the Long's Peak trailhead. The hike was 6.4 miles round trip and an elevation gain of around 1500 ft. The weather was cool to start (48 °F) and got a little cooler as we went up the cone. It got windy at the top and started to snow. While we were at the top it lightened up and we began to have some great views into Rocky Mountain National Park. The hike was really fun with a rewarding summit. On the way back down the weather warmed up quite a bit. It was 56°F when we finished.
