When you live in or travel to Colorado, it doesn’t take long until you hear people talk about hiking a “14er”.
When I first heard it I had to immediately ask, “What’s a Colorado 14er?”
A “14er” is mountain peak 14,000 feet above sea level. In Colorado, there are 53 peaks rising above 14,000 feet and higher! The peaks range from do-able hikes to tough technical climbs.
While most of my day hikes are around Fort Collins, hiking a 14er is a special experience. I try to check off three new 14ers every summer, and you should absolutely give a 14er a try too! [Read more…] about How to hike your first Colorado 14er
