Mt Sniktau Route Guide

Not everyone feels like summiting a 14er to start. Not everyone is able to physically. Mt Sniktau, with just 1,800 feet of gain and a 3.7 mile length, provides a much easier summit opportunity close to Denver! Just off I-70, a start from Loveland Pass leaves you high above tree-line, with stunning views as you hike up the Southwest Ridge to the summit. Make sure you take the time to research and plan ahead – even easy peaks can turn deadly in the wrong situation. Get started with this Mt Sniktau Route Guide.
