登山口Squaw Mountain Trailhead(海拔10,634呎 / 3,241公尺)
總爬升高度約1,200呎(366公尺)

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
行車資訊:
從Denver沿I-70州際公路西行,抵Exit 252時下交流道再沿CO-74 (Evergreen Parkway)南行,約3.4哩後右轉Squaw Pass Road,沿著Squaw Pass Road西行約12哩即抵達Squaw Mountain的登山口,登山口在左側(南),是一條不小的石子路,約在Squaw Pass Road里程牌19 miles左右;登山口沒明顯標示,只有一個高塔圖案下寫Squaw的木牌及一根“Shooting Regulations”的告示牌。

步程簡述:
10:00 登山口出發,沿Forest Service 192.1石子路上行,該石子路四傳車可一路直達山頂,但約0.5哩後的鞍部上去不遠即有柵門擋路,一般車輛不准通行;一般小車可開到鞍部停車,我們選擇走路上山。

10:11 抵達岔路口,距登山口約0.4哩;左下岔路是 Forest Service 252.1D石子路,右上是Old Squaw Pass Road,取直沿Squaw Mountain Road(Forest Service 192.1)續行;沿途槍聲不斷,別怕,這區域是合法的射擊區域,登山口有一個“Shooting Regulations”的告示牌,我沒仔細看其內容。
10:19 抵達稜線鞍部,一般車輛可開到此停車,距登山口約0.6哩;

右邊(西)往Papoose Mountain,左邊(東)往Squaw Mountain,取左彎沿石子路續上行。

10:22 抵達柵門管制處,距登山口約0.7哩;非公務或租瞭望台住宿之旅客車輛無法進入,繞過柵門續行,此後約有一哩半的步道是幾處的“之”字彎道,步道坡度不大,行來輕鬆。

10:49 岔路,左直行往山頂稜線西北邊第一座通訊發射塔,取右彎往森林防火瞭望台(Fire lookout tower)。
Squaw Mountain山頂是一條西北-東南走向長達半哩的稜線山脊,在這山脊上有三個獨立的山頭,在最東南邊最高的的山頭上有一座建於1940年的石砌二層建築森林防火瞭望台,另外兩個較低的山頭沒有建築物,但小心攀爬仍可攀登到最高點;在這山脊上也建有幾處通訊發射塔,遠處望來有點像是高雄中寮山的縮小版。
10:52 抵瞭望台下方,立有一座“Squaw Mountain Fire Lookout Elev. 11,486 ft.”的木製標示牌,此為行車終點,由標示牌左側沿石階路上山。

該瞭望台可出租住宿,內部廚房、客廳、臥室一應俱全,還有供電,唯一不便是無水,租住此處須自備飲用、盥洗水。
瞭望台一樓唯一的門及室外上二樓的樓梯皆上鎖,無法參觀;瞭望台的南邊及東南邊各有一座室外廁所及野餐桌;

在瞭望台外休息、瀏覽風景後下山,續往西北邊不遠的第二(中間)高點;第二高點整個也是一座岩石山頭,但此沿石山頭無路可上,只好自行找路攀岩而上,有一點難度。
11:26 登上Squaw Mountain中間的山頭,此山頭沒有通訊高塔的阻隔,更能清楚看到北方的Indian Peaks和落磯山脈幾座高山。

從中間高點下來後和太座又上瞭望台休息一陣子後再下山,下山我們僅花50分鐘,此山來回含山頂休息僅用去2小時45分鐘,輕鬆的一座小山頭 。
