  • Mount Princeton is a Colorado 14er in the Collegiate Peaks of the Sawatch Range.
  • This distinctive peak stands by itself. While not one of the highest peaks of the Sawatch, it is perhaps the most dramatic as it stands separate from other peaks and rises more abruptly from the Arkansas Valley than the other peaks of the range.
  • To the constant annoyance of those affiliated with Yale University, Mt Princeton is one foot higher than neighbor Mount Yale.
