|Peak:||Bard Peak (13er)|
|Date of Info:||06/20/2020|
This should be the standard route for these 3 peaks instead of the mine route. One of the best trails I've found myself on. Followed the Bard Creek Trail until reaching treeline, then picked our route up the slope to the summit. A bit of snow from the previous few days that will likely melt by tomorrow. Route off to Robeson was a grassy with a thin covering of snow that will be gone. Same with route from Robeson to Engelmann. We stayed just north of Englemann SE Ridge and had a pretty painfree bushwack to meet back up with the Bard Creek Trail.
Note that the road up to Bard Creek Trail is pretty rough. Only legit 4x4s will make it to the trailhead. Subies and the like will make it about a mile short near some cabins, unless you really don't care about your car. 2wd will be 2 miles shy at a pull off near Empire Pass.
