Route: Huron Peak (CO)

Colorado, US
6.3 mi

At 14,003', Huron Peak barely makes it as a 14er. But since it is, it's very popular.  The shortest, quickest route is the Northwest Slopes route from a 4WD-accessible TH above Winfield.  From there it's about 3.25 miles to the top, with 3500' of elevation gain.

Editor's Note: Many Colorado 14ers should not be considered “backcountry” where you go anywhere you want; their popularity can create a plethora of braided social paths that lasts for decades in the fragile tundra.  So if there is a trail, please stay on it. Hundreds of volunteers with the Fourteeners Initiative work hard to protect our mountain environment.
