Deming Mountain Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"There are a number of peaks in the southern Gore Range accessible as day trips from various trailheads in the Silverthorne/Frisco area. This ease of access is quite uncharacteristic for the Gores, as most of its peaks are nestled deep in the range far away from roads. Deming Mountain isn’t named on any of the quad maps of the region, but it has a survey marker denominating it as such.

The name dates back to the late 1800s when a family of miners and loggers, according to local Gore author Joe Kramarsic, “explored every inch of their wilderness backyard.” When we finally got around to climbing this pure gem of a peak in 2011, we noticed multiple entries in the register with a last name of Deming—perhaps relatives of the original Demings who explored the area over a century ago."
