Fine hike to the double-summit of Mount Sopris from the Thomas Lakes trailhead. The trail works up the cow-infested lower slopes then into the pines passing the lakes. Above treeline is the usual talus slope hiking along the east ridge to the east summit. The west summit is the exact same elevation at 12,953' about a mile away on easy scree.
