Rams Horn Mountain sits in Roosevelt National Forest, just south of the town of Estes Park, Colorado. It is close to, but outside of, Rocky Mountain National Park. Relative to its much more popular neighbors (Twin Sisters Peaks to the southeast, Longs Peak to the southwest, and the town of Estes Park to the north), Rams Horn Mountain sees little traffic. Rams Horn Mountain drops even further down in the popularity rankings due to the facts that there is no trail to its summit and the U.S. Forest Service closes access to it from April 1 to July 31.
However, if you don't mind a bit of off-trail hiking, Rams Horn Mountain is relatively easy to access. The summit provides a unique perspective of the area, with a 360-degree view of the many peaks south of Estes Park: Emerald Mountain, Eagle Cliff Mountain, Prospect Mountain, Kruger Rock, Twin Sisters Peaks, Lily Mountain, and "Thunder Peak".
The west side of the mountain is composed of granite cliffs. These rock formations were named "Teddys Teeth" by boys at the nearby YMCA camp in honor of (or making fun of) Teddy Roosevelt.
