 Evan‘s West Ridge from Spaulding   

I-70/C470: 5:50am
Summit Lake Parking Lot: 6:50 am
Spaulding Summit: 8:15 am
Sawtooth Summit: 8:45 am
Evans Summit: 10:30 am

Short hike, so short on the words, I found this to be a great, quick hike from Denver. I took my time playing a bit off trail to the summit of Spaulding, peeking over the Sawtooth, and staying faithful to Evan's west Ridge versus the trail.

Until the summit of Evan's saw 2 people on the trail.
