Climbed in June 2009 with my son. We took the Black Cloud trail, just off Hwy 82. Great place to car camp. (However, finding the turnoff to this trailhead is a bit tricky. Keep a sharp eye, N side of 82, just E of Mt Elbert Lodge) Since it's the least popular trail to the summit, we ended up having it all to ourselves, til we met some hikers at the summit that took the N Elbert trail. We got back down to treeline before the typical afternoon storm hit the summit. Beautiful hike to Colorado's highpoint!
