Squaretop Mountain Route Guide

Mt. Bierstadt, Grays & Torreys Peak, Mt. Evans… all of these front range 14ers are crowded in the summer. This year I saw hundreds on Bierstadt on July 4th. Few people realize that Squaretop Mountain, located right between these popular peaks, see few groups climb its summit, despite being a high 13er at 13,794 feet. The last section is a hike without a clear trail, a somewhat rare experience in the area near Denver. Plan your climb up this fun peak with this Squaretop Mountain Route Guide.
