Mt. Huron
Elevation: 14,003 feet
Mileage: 5.3 miles
Vertical Gain: 3,400 feet
Route: Southwest to Northwest Traverse

June 14th, 2003

Huron Peak is buried in the heart of the Sawatch Range and rises just barely over 14,000 feet. Access to Huron's South Winfield trailhead start from Chaffe County road 390 between Leadville and Buena Vista. Follow this dirt road for 11.8 miles to the town of Winfield. From here proceed south and then bear right to the 2wd parking. From here 4wds can proceed an additional 2.0 miles on a fairly rough forest service road. This was the first test for my new 4runner and it handled everything with ease. There is a fork in the road after about 1 mile and you want head right again until you reach the forest service closure gate at about 10,600 feet.
