Revenue Mountain seats on great divide sharing the same ridge with Decatur Mountain. This gentle mountain can be hiked from several different directions, but the easiest and most common way to get on top of this mountain is from the Decatur Mountain. It takes only somewhere between 30 and 45 minutes to make it from one summit to another. Both of these mountains are easy to hike, but the hike will offer some amazing views toward two most hiked 14eers in Colorado, Greys Peak and Torreys Peak. Beside these two most recognisable peaks in Colorado views from these two mountains toward some of Front Range 13ers are very appealing as well. Revenue Mountain is very easy to hike but in many ways very rewarding mountain.
