Mount Belford

Mount Belford is a Colorado 14er in the Collegiate Peaks of the Sawatch Range. Belford is an easy climb to a rounded summit. It lies near 14ers Mount Oxford and Missouri Mountain and is often climbed in conjunction with one or both of these peaks. Most people also summit Mount Oxford since it lies about a mile away on a high connecting ridge. Summiting all three 14ers in one day is a significant outing of 14.5 miles and 7400 feet vertical gain. None of the peaks are visible from the prying eyes of roads.
