I basically jogged up this one...except for the section of stairs that somebody created. I get the whole trail concept, but it kinda takes the fun out of "climbing" a mountain.

Left from .5 mi from Windsor as I wasn't feeling up for risking the rental car up the nasty road. Me and brother had summit to ourselves and beers to enjoy the magnificent view.

Another outstanding day in the Colorado high country! My regular hiking/climbing partner (shanrickv) and I did Mount of the Holy Cross July 4th. I decided to stick around and do Huron Peak the following AM. Perfect conditions, blue skies, reasonably snow free trail, moderate crowds, and the chance to stand at 14,003'! Met 2 fellow 14ers.com folks as well...all in all a great day!

Summited via Lulu Gulch. Managed to also summit Point 13,462 and Browns Peak (13,523) for a great Tour de Huron. Huron is very impressive from both of these sub peaks.

BeginnerClimberBeautiful day, beautiful hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 4, 2008


What a better way to celebrate our nation's Independence Day than to stand at the top of one of the nation's great peaks? Met a family from 14ers.com, camped on Rt 390, started hiking at 7AM. Made the summit a little before 11AM, and was down about 2:15. Beautiful day, great trails (except for that crazy trail for the summit push -- no trail was necessary there!), and just a beautiful hike through the woods. Recommend to all!

ElliottDavisThe Hard Way - YARR!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 30, 2008


I'm on a kick of celebrating the remoteness of big peaks, so I started at the Pine Creek TH just off route 24. Hiked up the Pine Creek Valley to the saddle between Iowa and Emerald; walked up those; dropped down into the Clear Creek Lake Fork valley E of Huron; scrambled up Huron via the loose rock and snow on the N side of the basin that holds Lois Lake; N along the ridge all the way past Cross Mtn and then East back down to the creek again, which was scary high and not crossable for my doggie companions, so bushwhacked back up to Cloyses Lake; S up the Pear Lake trail, over a couple passes to get to Silver King Lake basin; back all the way down Pike Creek and back to the very welcome sight of the car. Phew! 3.5 killer days and a mighty fine adventure. =) I hobbled around for a day after I got back, but I'm getting over the trauma enough to consider the next adventure. Max, my 11-year-old dog, might need some gentler adventures, but he is a real trooper. 37 miles, 13,000 vertical feet... it was truly satisfying to reach Huron this way.

Climbed solo as a ridge tour with Cross, Middle, 13462 and Browns. Second time up. Still pretty snowy for the last day of May, the road is still blocked with snow at the start of the 4WD section.

I climbed Huron Peak at age 4 with my Dad in July 2006. My Dad and I also attended the 14ers.com gathering on October 28 2007 where I went up to 13,640 feet.

Probably the most scenic 14er in the Sawatch Range. Tremendous views of the Three Apostles from the NW approach route (Winfield TH).

Date Climbed: Aug 22, 2003


The day before I tried to hike up to the summit, but was turned back around 13,000 feet due to approaching thunderstorm. So headed back and tried again the next day. This time the weather held and I was successful.

This was our second attempt on Huron. Our first was derailed by a route finding problem. Climbed the standard route this time. Got schooled by a girl about 8 running up the hill. A very nice view, with a nice trail!

jhansen007By the moonlight  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 26, 2007


Solo hike in an almost full moon. Left the 4WD trailhead above Winfield at 1230am. Summitted around 320am (with several stops to set up the tripod and camera). Nice and bright above treeline -- no need for headlamps. Watched the moonset from the summit--very neat experience except that meant it was extra dark on the way down. The trail is excellent and you can tell some hard work has been put into it.

My first 14'er for 2005. Great way to start off the season! Went a second time with a friend and hiked through fog the entire time. Guess they'll have to go back for the views.
