This report is for Torreys Peak only. Turn south at the Bakersville exit off I-70. Got a fairly early start and was able to get to within 800 feet or so of the trailhead (unlike two years ago, when I did Grays Peak). Bluebird day. Not a crowd on this weekday, but the parking lot was full by 7:00 a.m. and cars were parked at least 1/4 mile down the road. My little 2WD Edge made it up fine, with some jostling; I saw at least 4 sedans (including a Toyota Corolla) in the parking lot, so the road is in better shape than two years ago.

The trail is in good shape except for a few spots, and you still have to cut through a 100 yd snowbank to reach the saddle between Grays and Torreys.

The flowers and wetlands are georgeous. Lots of snow left to melt. My start was in mid 40 degrees and it never got hot. Great weather, but it sprinkled some about 1:30 p.m.
