Can anyone give me some info on the best times to climb Colfax peak. We are looking to combine this with a North Ridge climb on My Baker. Thanks!

if you are talking about the easiest way up, I would say the spring time before summer exposes all kinds of nasty rock. I have climbed n ride baker in ealry may and it was good. Colfax should be fine that time too, weather permitting.

If you are talking about the ice line on colfax, no idea how long that season lasts. I saw that Roger Strong climbed it this year.

One additional question. Did you have any issues with accessibility to the trailhead. Is the road open in May?

usually open by may. depending on how much snow we get this winter (currently getting plenty) you may have to walk a little bit to get to actual TH. they don't plow it for a opening date. just melt out.
