Thanks to Keylan for adding this peak.

Large peak in the Philmont scout ranch, well maintained trail, easy 3 hr ascent. Walk up to a rocky top with 360 view of surrounding peaks and on a clear day you get a long shot view north into Colorado at some of the 14's. two trails to the summit. excellent view, large peak
