Hiking Stewart Peak in Colorado: A Great San Juan 13er

Stewart Peak is one of the centennial thirteeners – the tallest 100 summits in the state. It’s also a great southern climb in the San Juan mountains for anyone looking for a quiet class 2 route. It’s located near San Luis Peak, so you can climb both peaks over the course of a weekend to get the most out of your time in the area. Here’s my advice and route info for hiking Stewart Peak, a fantastic Colorado thirteener.
