Mount Elbert

The highest peak in the Rocky Mountains is also the second highest peak in the lower 48 after Mt. Whitney in California. The easiest way up is via the 5.5 mile South Elbert Trail which climbs 4,600 feet from the Shore Pretty Overlook above Twin Lakes in the Arkansas Valley. The first 1.8 miles of the trail is along a 4x4 road and can be driven if your vehicle is capable. From there you’re nearly at treeline and the trail gains the eastern ridge to the summit. This hike takes most of the day so get an early start and pack a lunch, water, and appropriate gear.
