Colorado is home to 54 mountains that rise over 14,000 feet. Summer or winter, Carbondale is ground zero for great mountain summits, including access to the Elk Mountains and its five 14ers, 52 13ers, and the 12,953-foot Mt. Sopris. Each season requires different modes of transportation to tour these mountains. Whether traveling by skies or snowshoes in the winter, or by foot or bike in the summer, be sure to bring your camera. The Elk Mountains are some of the most picturesque mountains and offer breath-taking panoramic views. In addition to your camera, make sure you are well prepared for your expedition. The fast-changing weather and challenging terrain can catch even the most experienced mountaineers off guard.  Have the proper gear, a game plan, and remember never travel out into the wilderness alone. Find more helpful mountaineering information by visiting the U.S. Forest Service in downtown Carbondale.
