Since 1873 when William Henry Jackson stunned the world with his famous photograph of Mt. of the Holy Cross, untold thousands have made their way to Colorado to view this iconic mountain and its cross of snow. Our proposed hike will start from the Half Moon trail head and will end at the 14,005 foot summit of Holy Cross. This is a challenging and strenuous 9-10 hour hike, but the views from the summit will more than make up for the effort. The Holy Cross hike is a suggestion; other hikes can be worked out with Scott Beebe.
