    Flat Tops Wilderness

    I am looking to do a trip to the Flat Tops in Colorado next month. Wondering how the treee coverage is there and whether or not I will have any issues with hanging. All three of us going are hammock campers and prefer to keep it that way! If not if there are any other suggestions, I am open to ideas. I have already done Lost Creek and would prefer to hang somewhere new. Looing for 40 to 50 mile hike for 5 days.

    Thank you!

    Plenty of trees except on top. Should be able to design a good loop.

    Yeah you'll have a hard time finding spots to hang on top, might want to consider picking up the handy hammock stand or the trekking pole hammock stands that someone on here sells. I think they're called no ground poles or something like that.

    Those no ground poles look legit! I may end up ordering them for fun. I don't mind going to the ground for a night or so, but doubt we will need to. It seems at most a couple miles on the top, that way we can enjoy the views but camp down below. Thanks for all the replies!
