Hiking Mount Lady Washington in Colorado, A Great 13er

Longs Peak gets all the attention in Rocky Mountain National Park, but just below its summit you’ll find Mount Lady Washington. This thirteener is one of the trio of peaks that frame Chasm Lake below, in addition to Mount Meeker and Longs Peak. It’s an easier mountain to climb than either of the others, and you can’t beat the views of Chasm Lake from its summit. Hiking Mount Lady Washington includes passing through forests and across alpine terrain before you reach a final scramble up the slopes of the mountain. Read my full route guide for this Colorado 13er below.
