Mount Bierstadt

Mount Bierstadt is a Colorado 14er in the Front Range. Because it is generally considered an easy climb, along with its accessibility from nearby Denver, Mount Bierstadt is one of the most popular mountains to climb in Colorado. The most popular base to begin an ascent of Mount Bierstadt is Guanella Pass. From Guanella Pass it is approximately a 3 mile hike, with a climb of 2,391 feet. Alternative trails cover the eastern slopes for longer hikes. Once at the summit, a popular option is to continue the hike to nearby Mount Evans along a ridge known as The Sawtooth, an intermediate-level hike. Often such a trip will involve a detour down to Abyss Lake at the bottom of the valley separating Bierstadt and Evans.
