Fletcher Mountain Route Guide | A Fun Class 2 Climb

Fletcher Mountain is one of Colorado’s Centennial Peaks (the tallest 100 summits in the state). It’s one of the shortest climbs, with only 2,250 feet of elevation gain over 4.25 miles. The route holds snow late into summer, so bring an ice axe and microspikes just in case, and try it in August if you’re not a fan of snow and ice. Start planning your trip with my Fletcher Mountain Route Guide below. Safe travels on the trail!
