Default Spanish Peaks Run July 17-21

Where: Spanish Peaks, south of Pueblo.

When: July 17-21. Wed-Sunday.

Current plan is to head down Wed morning. Want to check out Hermit Pass before heading to Great Sand Dunes. Thursday do Medano Pass to the Spanish Peak. Friday explore the peaks. Saturday id like to do the hike up West Spanish peak. Looks to be pretty mild wheeling, but great country.

I'm going to be a weekend warrior this summer. Now a weekend down that way for Medano / Hayden (both of which I have not driven in a while) I'd be interested. And then there is Elanor (aka Blanca)

If I'm not mistaken, Hermit Pass is in the West Cliffe area.
There's Alvaredo Campground there. It's a beautiful place to camp. I've been going there regularly since I was just a kid. You will probably need to make reservations there though.
This sounds like a blast. The West Cliffe area is one of my favorite places in Colorado.
The Music pass road and trail is just south of there. It's a fairly easy 4x4 road for about 2.75 miles, and then a 1.2 mile hike up to the top of the pass. It's one of the most beautiful and inspirational places I've ever been to.
The 4x4 road starts at 3755'48.12"N-10527'26.25"W


Could you post the Lat-Long of the beginning and end of the Medano pass road?
