Overview

There are two peaks named Raspberry Mountain in the Pike's Peak region. One is nestled up against Pike's Peak in Teller County (near the Crag's Campground) and this is the other one, just west of the town of Monument. This peak is located in the Rampart Range between Mount Herman and Chautauqua Mountain. Quickest (and steepest) way up is from the Red Rocks trail head.
