2016-10-21  Route: South slopes
Posted On: 2016-10-21, By: madadraw1
Info: Rav4 made it up to the TH. Just the one major area of ruts at 1.5 miles from I70. The road had only a few areas of thin ice but not a problem at all. The trail has some very occasional areas of snow/ice but the trail is ~95% snow free. However, I can't speak to Grays/Torreys. From a distance, looked like snow might be accumulating in the trail higher up. This was a nice very quick outing. Just 2 hours 45 minutes in all.

Info: Not enough of a trip for a full report, but hopefully enough info for some conditions. My buddy and I reached the bottom of the Grays and Torreys trail at about noon, and set-off up the road. We didn‘t have snowshoes, and I wasn‘t too concerned. I just kind of wanted to scout the area, and see if it might be possible/safe to try and hike Kelso this weekend. The road had been driven up about 300 feet, then the tire tracks stop. There were a few pair of ski tracks running through the road, but otherwise, it was pretty desolate. We made it to the Bridge at the Grays and Torreys in about 2 hours, but were too burned from post-holing to continue. It was a much needed workout since a lackluster winter. Snow shoes weren‘t necessary, but they are definitely helpful

2012-11-03  Route: South Ridge

Info: Kelso is a good hike right now with amazing views. The road up had a little snow and ice but nothing too bad. There is some snow building near the summit but other than that it‘s clear. The wind is crazy cold so pack that down jacket! Full TR: 
2012-07-05  Route: Southwest (Kelso) Ridge
Posted On: 2012-07-05, By: DanielL
Info: We did the whole ridge from Kelso Mtn to Torreys Peak yesterday for Independence Day and the whole route was completely snow-free. The mountain has an unreal amount of false summits but the route is easy except for some Class 3 at the beginning above the Torreys-Kelso saddle.
