Climbing Mount Elbert in 1 day, Colorado

Climbing Mount Elbert in 1 day, Colorado | undefined

Join a certified guide on this Mount Elbert climbing adventure and get to the highest point of Colorado with your family or friends!


1 Day

May - Oct




Climbing Mount Elbert in 1 day is an ideal adventure to share with your family or friends.

Mount Elbert (4401 m) is located very close to Aspen. To get to the peak, you only have to take a short drive southeast. The mountain is famous among mountaineers because it is the highest mountain in both the Rockies, and in Colorado. Yet, despite its enormity, it is actually fairly easy to climb.

This program will start at the Twin Lakes. This is a beautiful spot that we’ll be able to appreciate even more from the summit of Mount Elbert. The climb will take approximately 8 hours and involves a wonderfully scenic hike through a forest and onto a rocky ridge and finishes with a moraine at the top.

The 360 degrees view of the Central Rockies that you’ll get from the summit is unparalleled. And the best part is getting to enjoy that view involves an easy hike that you’ll be able to do it with your family, including young children!

So don’t hesitate and send us a request to make this extraordinary adventure in Mount Elbert a reality.

What people are saying about E-S Adventure Guides



Great guides and great snow!



Will was great wise and fun to spend the day with.



Guide cancelled within 48 hrs and I was unable to find someone else and so far I’ve not been refunded. Put a small dent in my otherwise great trip to Revelstoke.



All perfect



Guide was very experienced and very patient with us. We learned alot and he tried to fit in all the knowledge he could in one day, super awesome. A little tough going back and forth to get the trip set up hard to tell if the site is sketchy until you see reviews but all worked out. Ended up with an awesome day with an awesome guide. Overall pretty satisfied and thankful!
