Saint Peters Dome

Date: 01/04/2015
Who: Sammy and myself
Length: about 1 mile
Time: 1 hour
Weather: about 30 degrees, sunny

Today we drove up Old Stage Road and Gold Camp Road, to the St. Peter’s Dome trailhead (Duffield’s Overlook). This is a short hike, but was more challenging today with about 6-10 inches of snow on the trail. I was prepared with waterproof hiking shoes, gaiters and microspikes, and layers to stay warm.

Almost at the top, there’s a bit of rock scrambling necessary. A rope is there for assistance, although I don’t know how old it is. I didn’t want to leave Samadhi by herself, so decided not to climb up the rope.

We also took a short walk down a closed off old section of Gold Camp Road, and got this photo of St. Peters Dome from there:

Sorry, no map. After recent changes to Google Maps, much functionality seems to be missing.

UPDATE on 11/14/2015:
I went back to St. Peters Dome on 9/26/2015, climbed the rope and reached the top. Here’s a photo looking back at Colorado Springs from St Peters Dome.

  1. Liked the post, looked cold and sunny for that snowy mountain hike. A non roping climbing dog…loved that, laughed out loud for real! If you ever name the orange jeep, I offer Julius as an option. I’m just saying, it’s got the Orange Julius thing workin for it, the “J” from Jeep, and its still kinda manly, I think. Anywho, love ya brother, keep wandering, and keep telling us about it!
