From 12pm on beware of surprise fast moving dangerous lightning storms at higher altitudes than the campgrounds: hike to summits in the EARLY MORNING in the months of July-August. Take cover & lie flat if lightning comes.

Must hike Mt. Princeton! If you summit be sure to take you PLB in case of emergency. I had spotty cell coverage with ATT and Verizon in many places. Weather changes rapidly so be sure to take proper clothin and gear. You can’t beat the views! I love all the collegiate peaks and visit multiple times a year because I just can’t get enough!
