Quandry Peak Professional Review and Guide

"As Colorado’s fourteeners go, Quandary Peak is a relatively easy hike. Like all fourteeners, getting to the top requires a significant expenditure of energy, but the climb is only 3.1 miles long and there is now an excellent trail most of the way. Before 2001 the trail was much more primitive, but it has since been significantly improved by an organization called the Colorado Fourteeners Initiative.

The trail has been rerouted up the south side of the mountain’s east ridge, and long sections of stone stair steps have been constructed in several areas to facilitate the assent. Its easy access has made Quandary Peak one of the state’s most popular 14,000- foot climbs. Even in winter a surprising number of people carry skis and snowboards to the to summit for the descent down the mountain’s gentle eastern slopes."
