Longs Peak holds many titles. It's the highest peak in Boulder County and Rocky Mountain National Park. It is also the northernmost 14er in Colorado and the Rocky Mountains. Longs Peak was first climbed by John Wesley Powell in 1868 while exploring the stream system that fed the Colorado River. Most ascents of Longs Peak begin at the Longs Peak Trailhead located 9.2 miles south of Estes Park on Highway 7. For my 2003 Longs Peak trip report in snowy conditions CLICK HERE
