Started at first "trailhead", didn't drive a 4X4, loved the views, great hike with a lot of different terrain. The views at the summit were awesome except for the haze from all the wildfires burning in other states.

Date Climbed: May 13, 2017


With Rachael, skied off the summit onto east face working my way back to the Browns saddle while she hiked down. Then skied the NW bowl together to treeline. Patchy snow in the trees and road made for a lot of skis-on/skis-off carrying which was annoying, but the ski above treeline was fun.

Hiked in May, with lots of post-holing later in the day.

tjburrSeven Summit Huron Pk on 9-28-2016  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 28, 2016


I was the third of seven climbers (plus one dog) to summit Huron Peak on Wednesday, September 28, 2016. There was a rock with name of mountain on it in black marker; no summit registry. Five of seven were women. Climbers were from Texas, Colo Springs, Montrose CO, Westminster CO, Montana, and Arvada CO. Spectacular fall climb. Notable wildlife: Big Coyote above timberline; and snowshoe hare at trailhead area. Ample dispersed camping was available. Awesome aspen color enroute to trailhead on County Rd 390.

Climbed with Mary. One of the nicest 14ers I've done so far. We waited in the trees for an isolated storm that passed over at around 7AM, and then had great weather for the rest of the trip.

14,010 ft. Huron Peak -- Started at 6:30 AM from the 4WD trailhead, ascended the standard route which started out with many switchbacks until we reached a large snow filled basin. We had a good view of the rest of the route from here. We ascended through snow up the ridge to the summit. Made summit around noon. Round trip approx 7 miles, made it back to the trailhead around 3:30PM. The snow ascent made it a much more strenuous hike than it would have been under dry summer conditions. Had amazing weather and amazing views almost all day!

One of my first 14ers - Huron Peak is definitely my favorite of the "easy" 14ers!

displacedchzheadEasy summit  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 18, 2013


We started from the 4WD trailhead, which cut off 3.5 miles RT. Lots of wildflowers above treeline. About 50 feet shy of the summit, we heard our first rumble of thunder, so we only stayed on top for 3-4 pictures, and got down below the ridgeline quickly. Fortunately, the thunder died down, and we made it back down to the TH before steady rain came.
