When first seeing Mount Elbert from afar, you might wonder about its “highest in Colorado” status. Looming above the Arkansas Valley, which already lies at 10,000 feet, the elevation gain does not seem dramatic. North of Mount Elbert across Halfmoon Creek, the aptly named Mount Massive (14,421 feet) stands a mere 12 feet lower. Mount Elbert is the highest point in Colorado and second highest in the Lower 48. The North Mount Elbert Trail climbs steeply through lodgepole, then spruce-fir forest and across alpine tundra. The worst parts of hiking Mount Elbert are its false summits and wind. The best parts include tremendous views and a feeling of great accomplishment. It’s imperative to leave no later than 6:30 a.m. to avoid thunderstorms and lightning. Allow at least four to six hours for the hike to the top. Bring plenty of water and energy food, for yourself and your dog.
