Montezuma Peak from Elwood Pass Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The views from the top of Montezuma Peak and nearby Long Trek Mountain are both outstanding. From the summits look to the Weminuche Wilderness and see the Rio Grande Pyramid, the Grenadier Mountains, and the Needle Mountains. But wait, there’s more: You’ll also see to the La Garita Mountains, the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, the Spanish Peaks, and New Mexico.

About 50 yards south of Elwood Pass, hike west off the four-wheel-drive road to unsigned Continental Divide Trail (CDT) 813. A raised trail leads over a boggy area before you enter the trees. The trail winds up a ridge before rising above the tree line, where the views are magnificent."
