Be sure to stay right at all turns as you drive the 4WD trail from Winthrop. Ascent from 4WD closure. Dry all the way to the top. Amazing views of Ice Mtn -- there's a tantalizing couliour leading to the tippy-top over there....

I started out from Winfield on the North Ridge route (route 12.2 in Roach's guidebook), but instead of going east into Lulu Gulch, I continued south into the Banker Mine drainage, for my Trails Illustrated map shows a primitive trail continuing on to the main Huron Peak trail. What a mistake! The jeep trail peters out, so I had to climb directly up the hill and over to Browns Peak. Then I traversed over to Huron and then headed back down via the standard route. It was a very tiring day, but what the hell, it builds character and all that.

Another nice CFI. Very mellow 14er in my opinion.

Started from the 4WD closure - took only 1hr 40min to make the summit. Mostly snow free above treeline, although there is a long crossing of a snowfield that softens up quite a bit during the day. Got to do a nice glissade down one of the upper snowfields though -that was a lot of fun! The Apostles looked stunning (and very snow - covered!)

In near white out conditions, we somehow (and don't ask me how) ended up making a big arc around the other side of Brown's (ON a ridge, explain that one) and ended up summitting another 13er. The other 13er was similar in height as Brown's so, we shrugged, called it good, and headed over to Huron. Then in the still near white-out conditions, with a few high winds thrown in, we summitted Huron. Views were nonexistent, but it was still pretty awesome. Snowed most of the way down, saw an elk and a few other forest creatures. All in all a great day,...confusing, but a great day!

Oops! Be sure you know your directions when looking at pictures of mountains so as to summit the right one first...

While taking a "breather" just above the saddle between Huron & Browns (next to Huron), I noticed Roache's picture of Huron... and then thought I was next to Brown's.... I didn't really care to "bag" Brown's, so I headed over to what I thought was Huron.... Yeah, I bagged Brown's, then headed BACK over to bag Huron (Huron's summit can not be seen until you reach the top). Oh well! 2 summit's in a day, not half bad.

Great climb. Fast pace, started in late afternoon. One of the closest lightening situations I've been in. Kind of thought the thunderstorms weren't gonna come that day, since I had blue sky at 3:30pm when I started! Beautiful country.

The view from this summit is one of the most spectacular from a Colorado 14er, you can see much of the Sawatch Range as well as the far away Elk Range

Took a friend up on his first 14er. A nice, short, steep one, if I recall correctly (I hope I recall correctly, as it's all I recall about this one).

In the days before a true west slope trail, we followed the old jeep trail from Winfield up to the gully on the NW ridge of Browns Peak. We then climbed this gully to where the two ridges merge and then to Brown's summit. We followed the ridge south to Huron's summit. On the descent, we climbed back over Browns Peak, but then continued to the saddle just north of it. We then turned left, descending on tundra into Lulu Gulch, and then to another jeep trail to the cars at Winfield.

Started from the South Winfield 4WD trailhead, and did this route in under 5 hours. The CFI trail was very easy - you could have hiked this one with your hands in your pockets the whole way. We did encounter a few massive cairns along the way which seemed like overkill.

My 13th Fourteener. Great tree color etc. in the valleys, but caught in a total whiteout on the summit with no view whatsoever. Two hours later, the sky cleared, but I was already back down at the South Winfield Trailhead. Who says it pays to start early??? :-)

This was definitely a climb that me and my friends winged. We set out for a nice hike in the mountains near Winfield and wound up on top of Browns Peak, looked at a map, and realized that Huron Peak was right there. So we went over and climbed it, too. Great weather and a hell of a fun day!
