Colorado’s Top 10 Summit Hikes

Colorado’s Rocky Mountains contain a wide diversity of sub-ranges that offer markedly different hiking experiences. Each geologically unique set of peaks has been formed by nature’s most potent forces: volcanic eruptions, tectonic shifts, wind, ice and water. From the rounded-off summits of the Sawatch Range to the jagged spires of the Sangre De Cristo Mountains, each mountain range carries with it a distinct ambiance and each peak requires its own set of challenges to reach the top. Elevation Outdoors is proud to present a sampler of some of the very best non-technical hikes and scrambles that showcase the best of Colorado’s mountain melange. See you at the top.hesperus
