由丹佛沿I-70州際公路西行,然後在Exit 218出口下交流道,隨即右後轉彎行駛一條兩三百呎的石子路即抵達Herman Gulch Trailhead,登山口有一處蠻大的停車場,登山口就在停車場的北邊中間位置,此登山口是Herman Gulch Trail和Watrous Gulch Trail共用登山口。

一開始數百呎的步道在松林中平緩前進,步道維護得很好。
09:20Herman Gulch TrailWatrous Gulch Trail岔路,海拔10,376(3,163公尺),距登山口約400(122公尺)取左上朝西北往Herman Lake
這一段上坡路段較為陡峭,地面小砂石也較為鬆散,交代貝貝行走要特別小心;小徑還算寬敞,左側山谷下是Herman Gulch Creek,兩側白楊木(Aspen)葉子已掉光,僅剩光溜溜的枝條樹幹,有點蕭條;

行約半哩後海拔約10,700呎(3,261公尺)步道趨緩,緊鄰小溪右岸上行,步道旁偶而出現小面積的草原及一種這裡稱為Willow的小喬木,這種植物Moose最喜歡吃了,所以紀錄上這裡也常出現Moose活動的足跡。

Herman Lake位在海拔13,553(4,131公尺)Pettingell Peak山腳下,湖面不大,湖岸都是大小石塊,我們找一塊平坦的巨岩在上面休息用餐,貝貝說這個大石頭睡覺很舒服,又不用擔心掉到湖裡面去!

Oh, no, this is mine~

吃過中餐後我跟貝貝說我想去爬爬Pettingell Peak,貝貝鼓勵我去,並說他會乖乖的在這塊大石頭上休息看我爬山!
12:20 啟程攀登Pettingell Peak,我走的是Pettingell Peak南坡路線;沿著Herman Lake的東岸朝北往山腳下前進;

行到Herman Lake的東岸盡頭從一處Pettingell Peak南坡下方的溝壑朝西北上攀,有一條還算清楚的路跡可依循;由此朝Pettingell Peak
