Welcome to Colorado’s highest mountain. Elbert is a gentle giant whose lofty heights are also tops in all the Rocky Mountains. This king of 14ers is one of Colorado’s best hikes. Humble Mount Elbert has little fanfare outside of the Centennial State, despite being the second highest mountain in the lower 48 states (and the 21st highest in the entire US, including Alaska). Only Mount Whitney (14,494 feet) in California is higher. Elbert’s northeast ridge is a surprisingly moderate hike (roughly 8 to 9 miles round trip, and 5 to 7 hours of hiking) and is typical of the rounded, giant Sawatch mountains. Why Climb It? The obvious draw to Mount Elbert is its height. The gentle northeast ridge that the Mount Elbert Trail follows is a true classic. The lower sections weave through a pristine pine forest and then switchback up to treeline, where Elbert’s majesty is revealed.
