Grays Peak Trail (from Stevens Gulch TH)

8.3 mi • 3,609 ft gain • Class 1

Highlights

  • Grays Peak is the highest Colorado 14er in the Front Range.
  • Its summit is the highest point exactly on the Continental Divide.
  • Like the other fourteeners nearby, Grays Peak is considered to be an easy hike by 14er standards and is very popular among weekend climbers.
  • Often a climb to the summit of Grays Peak is accompanied by continuing on to Torreys Peak, less than a mile away. From the summit of Grays, a trail descends to a saddle before climbing up to the summit of Torreys.
  • The summit includes a very small U-Shaped rock shelter and has extensive views stretch south to Pikes Peak and the San Luis Valley, east to the Great Plains, West to Silverthorne, and north to Longs Peak and Rocky Mountain National Park.
