Editor's Note:
As of June 1, 2009, the Kite Lake trailhead is open again, giving hikers access to Mounts Lincoln and Democrat (and Mt. Cameron, an unoffical 14er). Landowners near Bross have not yet reached a settlement with officials, so trails to that peak remain closed. Please abide the private property signs.
