Trail shared by Tyler Prince

A short class 2 route from jeep road to summit.

Family Friendly This short class 2 summit track makes for a decent, low exertion way for small children to hike a 14er.

The lower trailhead can be reached year-round. Higher portions of the road may be reached depending on the weather, snowfall, and your vehicle.

Description

This trail begins at Pt 13,800, an unnamed 13er which can be easily reached via ATV. It is the only singletrack portion of the Mt. Antero hike. Cross a rocky ridge toward Mt. Antero. It's easiest to stay just to the right of ridge proper - it's flatter and less treacherous. Once across the ridge, continue up some class 2 talus for about 400 ft to reach Mt. Antero's fairly large summit. The views are slightly unique, as there's way more road than on any other Sawatch 14er.

Flora & Fauna

Due to high ATV traffic, there aren't many critters up here.
