Highlights

  • Huron Peak is a Colorado 14er in the Collegiate Peaks Wilderness in central Sawatch Range.
  • It lies west of the Mount Belford group.
  • While relatively close to its neighbor peaks, it is separated from them by deep cols, resulting in a moderately high prominence.
  • Nearby to the south are the Three Apostles, a striking group of three 13,000 foot peaks.
  • The shortest and most popular route is Class 2 from the South Winfield Trailhead.
