Description:

Colorado is the highest state in the US, thanks in part to its 54 "fourteeners" (mountains over 14,000ft, or 4,267m). Many trekkers strive to collect all 54, and Quandary Peak (14,265ft) is a good starter. It requires no ropework or technical scrambling – just the burn of oxygen-starved muscles. The waymarked three-mile route begins at 10,900ft, from a trailhead eight miles south of Breckenridge. Hikers pass a cluster of abandoned mines before gaining the peak's east ridge, near the treeline at 11,700ft. From there, mountain views abound. Be sure to leave the peak by noon to avoid afternoon lightning.
