Red Cloud and Sunshine Peaks

Red Cloud and Sunshine Peaks Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The main attraction of this hike is that it allows you to bag two of Colorado’s coveted fourteen-thousand-foot peaks in a single day. True, at 14,001 feet Sunshine is just barely high enough to be classified as a fourteener, but it is still Colorado’s 55th highest peak, and like Red Cloud it offers an exquisite panorama of the ruggedly beautiful San Juan Mountains."
