Longs Peak

The northernmost fourteener of the Colorado Rocky Mountains is also one of the most popular, mostly since it’s so easy to see from the Colorado Lowlands. A prominent diamond shape sits below the summit and is a popular rock climbing wall. But those keen to hike it usually start in the dark hours of the morning to tackle the standard 8.4 mile Keyhole route. The trail starts at 9,400 feet and gains over 5,000 feet. Around 11,000 feet, the trees thin out and the view down the slope appears as does a nice look at the distinctive diamond face. The trail continues around a sub-peak called Mt. Lady Washington, and into the boulder field that leads up to the namesake Keyhole—the gateway to the last push to the summit.
