Alberta Peak turned out to be a much easier hike than we have been taking lately. You start the hike at the Continental Divide sign up on Wolf Creek Pass just before you get to the Wolf Creek Ski Area. You immediately find yourself in a pine forest with a spongy needle-covered ground which feels great on the feet. The first part of the hike is uphill with switchbacks but they are not too arduous — that is if you are already acclimated to the altitude.
I made this hike this week with my buddy and Pagosa Springs home inspector Eric Ziminsky of Total Home Inspections — great guy who does outstanding work. Below is a video from the top of Alberta Peak. The video starts off with a 360 degree view and then includes some zoomed in shots of Chimney Rock and other surrounding peaks. Below the video are various pictures I took of the hike. Enjoy!
