Mt Sopris Professional Reviews and Guides
"Sopris is perhaps the most impressive stand-alone mountain in Colorado, especially when viewed from Carbondale. Both east and west summits boast the exact same official elevation; I got the same results with my GPS."
--James Dziezynski, Best Summit Hikes in Colorado (Wilderness Press).
"These twin peaks are gentle giants surrounded by the rugged beauty of the Elk Range. Trail: All the way."
--Dave Muller, Colorado Summit Hikes for Everyone (Colorado Mountain Club Press).
