Mount Antero
Elevation: 14,269 feet
Mileage: 11.2 miles
Vertical Gain: 3,470 feet
Route: West Slopes

July 21st, 2002

Mount Antero is the 10th highest 14er in Colorado and located directly south of Mt. Princeton near Buena Vista. To reach the Baldwin Gulch Trailhead go south on U.S. 285 from Buena Vista and turn right on County Road 162 5.6 miles south of the U.S. 24 & 285 Junction. Proceed 11.6 miles on County 162 to the Baldwin Gulch Trailhead. 4-wheel drive vehicles can proceed 3 more miles up a very rough road to 10,800 feet where the road crosses Baldwin Creek. The road is very rocky and narrow which creates problems when passing oncoming vehicles. The road continues all the way to 13,700 feet and there is numerous camping along the road, but the Junction at Baldwin Creek still leaves you 3470 feet to climb for a legal ascent.
