"Climbing a “fourteener” is perhaps the ultimate goal of many hikers in Colorado. And because nearly all of the state’s ?fty-four mountains higher than 14,000 feet challenge even experienced hikers, youngsters often miss out on this experience. However, healthy, prepared kids relish the climb up Mount Sherman (14,036 feet). The pair of peaks are named for Civil War generals. From the road where most two-wheel-drive cars park, Mount Sherman is visible though no trailhead marks the route up the peak. It’s a 2-mile walk to the four-wheel-drive road. Simply continue following the rocky, four-wheel-drive road 0.2 mile to the abandoned buildings." Read more
