2021 Montrose, Colorado Visitor Guide - 29

Perhaps the most photographed mountain
in Colorado, Mount Sneffels stands as the
magnificent northern guardian to the expansive
San Juan Mountains. To climb the beautiful peak,
head to Ouray, then follow Camp Bird Road up to
Yankee Boy Basin. It is a difficult hike and a helmet is
recommended as a precaution against loose rocks.
Leave the trailhead early in the morning and allow
at least half a day for this adventure.

Handies Peak
14,058'
Ranked as Colorado's easiest 14er to climb. This
hidden gem can be accessed by driving east on
Highway 50, then taking Highway 114 south to Lake
City. From Lake City, follow County Road 20 to the
trailhead. Allow a half day for this moderate hike. Be sure
to take in the view of the wildflowers in American Basin
just below the peak.

Uncompahgre Peak
14,309'
This fantastic peak is the highest point in the
San Juan Mountains and rewards climbers with
unparalleled panoramic views. Reach the trailhead from
County Road 20 near Lake City. High-clearance, 4WD
vehicles are strongly recommended. Ambitious trekkers
can bag two fourteeners in a single day by including
nearby Wetterhorn Peak on their route.

14ers of the San Juans

Mount Sneffels
14,157'

Wetterhorn Peak
14,015'
Situated right next door to Uncompahgre, this
magnificent peak reminded early settlers of the
famous Wetterhorn of Switzerland. Access this 14er
via high-clearance, 4WD access roads from the Silver
Jack area near Owl Creek Pass or via the Lake City access
for Uncompahgre Peak. Allow at least half a day if
approaching from the Lake City side or a full day from
Wetternhorn Basin near Owl Creek Pass.
