East Meaden Peak from Sand Mountain
These are all of the 10,000 foot peaks in the Elkhead Mountains in Colorado that have over 300 foot prominence. Peaks without official names are in quotations. Names were taken from benchmarks, maps, or from the nearest named feature (such as a lake or peak). Peaks with mountain pages and photographs are in bold.
Note that Meaden Peak is marked differently on various maps. On the 7.5 minute/1:24,000 USGS maps, Meaden Peak is marked as what is East Meaden on this list. On the 1:100,000 USGS maps, Meaden Peak is marked as what is West Meaden Peak on this list.
Elkhead Mountains-10,000+ Foot Peaks with 300+ Feet Prominence

Note: *There is some confusion as to whether Hahns Peak and Mount Farwell belong to the Sierra Madre or the Elkhead Mountains. According to the book the History of the Elkhead Mountains
, Hahns Peak is the eastern-most point in the Elkhead Mountains.
From what I gather, the Elkhead Mountains end at the saddle between Hahns Peak and Farwell Mountain.
**Although Columbus Mountain itself is on BLM land, it seems that all accesses to the mountain are blocked by strips of private land.
