The Colorado Front Range

The Front Range stretches over 175 miles from the Colorado/ Wyoming border to west of Pueblo in southern Colorado. The Front Range jets out of the plains and creates a dramatic change in scenery for travelers out of the Midwest. The city of Denver as well as many other cities and towns from Fort Collins to Pueblo a situated at the base of these mountains.

There are 6 14ers located in the Front Range. Due to Colorado's population distribution along the Front Range, these peaks see the most traffic and can be very busy on any summer weekend. These peaks are all easily accessible from I-25 or I-70 making them great peaks for visitors to climb also.

The Front Range Peaks include Long's Peak (14,255), Grays Peak (14,270), Torreys Peak (14,267), Mount Evans (14,264), Mount Bierstadt (14,060), and Pikes Peak (14,110).
