Highlights

  • Mount Lincoln is the highest Colorado 14er in the Mosquito Range and lies just east of the Continental Divide.
  • Many climbers attempt to combine the summit of Lincoln with those of Bross and Democrat in one climb.
  • Typically climbed from the east, starting at the Roberts Road Trailhead off of Colorado Highway 9. Multiple routes ascend from this trailhead, all starting along the Quartzville Creek Jeep Trail.
  • The shortest route climbs 3,000 feet in 3.5 miles, with the upper part of the route involving hiking on broken granite and shale.
