14ers For Beginners

Not sure how many people saw the Denver Post article on Saturday, but there’s a good article for 14er begginers. Click here to read it. And, I’m not sure anything really beats 14ers.com as a resource!

The article lists a few suggestions for your first 14er (relatively easy hikes, with quick access from Denver). In addition, I’d suggest Huron Peak, Mt. Antero or Mt. Princeton, espeically if you have a high-clearance, 4wd vehicle. You’ll drive a bit farther to get to the peaks I mentioned, but you’ll also get away from the crazy crowds that flock to the Front Range.

We hiked our first 14er in the Sangre de Cristo Range this weekend – Humboldt Peak (14,064′).

That’s us at the top with the Crestones in the background. More pics and a trip report to come soon! Happy Monday, everyone!
