San Gorgonio Mountain has many hiking trails to the summit and a North Face chute for mountaineering. Spring is a great time to climb this chute to the tallest mountain in Southern California if you’re experienced.
The classic Four Pass Loop is a beautiful must-hike backpacking trip in Colorado that goes over four 12k ft mountain passes. Combine this with the Maroon Bells Traverse, one of the four Colorado’s great traverses, and climb two 14ers. Start at the East Fork trailhead for an epic 38 miles adventure.
Mount Evans is one of the two 14ers in Colorado you can drive up to – so why hike it? The hike from Summit Lake offers beautiful views of valleys you don’t see from the summit of Mt. Evans and you get to bag a 13er, Mt. Spalding, along the way
List of California 14ers ranked by difficulty. A fourteener is a mountain with a summit elevation of at least 14,000 ft. There are 15 peaks in California that rise above 14k ft, but only 12 of them are considered true 14ers due to the peak prominence.
Ready to cool down in the California heat this summer? The Eastern Sierra mountains has a ton of alpine lakes, some more easily accessible than others – here are some of my favorite, beautiful turquoise, scenic alpine lakes.
