Medicine Bow Peak Trip Report (#12564)
- Signed By: Christopher Dorry

Everytime has been climbed with someone different. My first ever climb was completed with Nathan Butts. The second climb completed with Bob and Ann Marie Dorry, and the most recent time with my brother Shawn Dorry. Everytime we have started from the West Lake Marie parking lot. From here it is a 3.8 mile climb, making a round trip of almost 8 miles. Most of the elevation gain is in the first mile or so, and once around to the back side it is quite an easy, beautiful climb to the top, where you can see for miles and miles. To the East is the Laramie Range and the town of Laramie. To the South is the Colorado Rockies, including Longs Peak. To the West/North there is the Elk Mountain Area.
