 Mt. Bierstadt  

Myself and my hiking partner rolled out of Aurora at about 0400 and got to the trail head by about 0600. It is tricky to find because there is no signage for the parking lot on the left side of the road.

The lower portion of the trail was slightly soggy and the boardwalks were frost covered. The stream crossing was a bit tricky but thanks to a post from a previous hiker we crossed cautiously. Many of the stones and logs were ice/frost covered.

Moving out at a pretty decent pace for a flatlander, we ended up reaching the summit after 2 hours. The route back down took a little over an hour.
