Yes. That grid coordinate is on the Blue Lakes trail, which is a hiking trail. Yankee Boy Basin Road goes up to the old mine area at the beginning of that trail and ends. I have climbed Mount Sneffels several times over the years. It's a very beautiful climb if you are athletic. The road up is pretty easy. You could make it in a stock SUV when I drove it about six years ago.

A much-younger me, on top of Mount Sneffels in 1996:



The Blue Lakes are visible below me:

Bill make sure you hit a hot spring to sooth them bones while in Colorado. I like Strawberry park in Steamboat Springs. It's a very cool place.
