Hiking Mount Edwards | Free 13er Route Info

Hiking Mount Edwards, one of Colorado’s 100 tallest, or “centennial peaks” is an easy day trip close to Denver. You’ll need a 4WD vehicle with good clearance to get you to the Waldorf mine area (see the google map below). Once there, you’ll likely be alone on the mountain, as this 13er gets few visitors, unlike its 14er neighbors Grays and Torreys further along the ridge. You can add on McClellan Mountain just down the ridge in the other direction to get two 13ers in one climb. Plan your visit with my Mount Edwards route guide below.
