Mount Lincoln (Colorado) Climbing Notes

Joan from Colorado from UNITED STATES writes:

Road to trailhead still sketchy for sedans, not SUVs or other with 4WD. Kite Lake camping - Small fee: $7.00 or $3.00 to park for the day. Friend and I hiked up to Cameron and then on to Lincoln on 8/22/16. I am 65, she is 56. We came down the trail from Bross. It is a horrible downhill with scree and gravel - very steep. Took us longer to descend than the ascent! Forest Service does not advise using the descent from Bross. Instead, backtrack to the Lincoln and descend the way you came up.
