Located in the Elk Meadows Open Space in Evergreen, Co this peak is a good test piece close to Denver. This route is one of the most direct but there are many ways to reach the summit. Starting at the Lewis Ridge Trailhead you hit the summit via Elk Ridge and Bergen Peak Trail.
There are Strava segments. But unfortunately these start/end at a trail junction, not the actual TH at the parking lot. The FKT should be from the parking lot!

FKT Editors Note: From the trailhead, you must tag the true summit of the peak, i.e. the summit marker shown in the photo. Please refer to the gpx for this route to view the correct turnaround point.
