The Glacier Gorge Traverse (Rocky Mountain National Park) is an epic loop hitting 11 peaks and 12,000' of climbing packed into 20 miles. The Continental Divide runs to the west and south of the basin and the Long's Peak massif to the east. The gorge is decorated with enormous slabs of granite, canyons, waterfalls and tarns. Anton Krupicka recently completed the traverse and wrote a fantastic trip report on his running times blog. In fact Tony put up a new FKT (fastest known time) for this route. Truly inspiring. I hope to head out that way sooner rather than later.
