Colorado, the roof of the Rockies, offers 55 fourteeners, or mountains above 14,000 feet, for climbers to tackle. It is a goal of peak baggers to climb them as many as possible.

Colorado offers more mountains above 14,000 feet than any other U.S. state, including Alaska. Here is a complete listing of all of Colorado's fourteeners, their elevations, and the mountain ranges they are located in.

Honorable Mentions

These peaks are above 14,000 feet high but do not meet the official USGS or Colorado Mountain Club criteria for being separate fourteeners. A peak must have at least 300 feet of topographic prominence and be isolated from a higher summit to qualify.

That said, El Diente Peak and North Maroon Peak, neither of which fit the criteria, are included in the above list since they have long been considered members of the exclusive Fourteener club. It's best to climb them all.

  1. North Massive Peak 14,340 Feet Sawatch Range
    Rises 280 feet above saddle with Mount Massive
  2. Mt. Cameron 14,238 feet Mosquito Range
    Rises 138 feet above saddle with Mount Lincoln
  3. Conundrum Peak 14,060 feet Elk Range
    Rises 240 feet above saddle with Castle Peak
