Mt. Princeton
Elevation: 14,197 feet
Mileage: 6 miles
Vertical Gain: 3,197 feet
Route: East Slopes

August 3rd, 2002

Mount Princeton is one of the monarchs of Colorado's Sawatch Range. From Buena Vista it dominates the skyline. Access to Mt. Princeton is obtained from County Road 162 about 6 miles south of the US 24 and 285 junction. From the county road turn right onto the Mt. Princeton Road immediately across from the Mt. Princeton Hot Springs. The road is narrow and hard to squeeze past oncoming traffic. Roach's book recommends parking at 11,000 feet near some radio towers which is where we started our hike from.
