Definitely take the chair lift to the top. Take a sweater as it will be 10 degrees colder or more on the top. It will be a 30 mon. ride up and 30 min. ride back.

We spent a morning hiking the shoulder of Mt. Humphreys. Aspen forests run down to open pine woodlands, great view of the mountain and even some wildlife. Will definitely be back for more!
