Hike 13,868-foot Mt. Meeker instead of neighboring Longs Peak, and you’ll miss out on Fourteener bragging rights. What you’ll also miss: conga lines up the tundra and crowds spilling into your summit selfie. The off-trail ascent up Meeker remains wonderfully lonely and offers plenty of high-altitude adventure in its own right: Choose the 7-mile, class 3 approach from Sandbeach Lake Trail or the 5.7 mile, class 3 scramble via The Loft. Info http://nps.gov/romo
