Mount Sherman (Elevation 14,036 Feet) - Fairplay / Leadville, CO
A Mid-Week Excursion To The Mountains July 23, 2014 - It's my opinion that Mount Sherman is the easiest 14er to hike in the summer. When
accessed from the gate at Four Mile Road on the Fairplay side, it's a mere 5.25 miles round trip and just a 2000 foot gain in elevation.
(Mount Bierstadt and Mount Democrat are a close second and third.)
This peak can also be accessed from the Lake County side, but I've heard the trail is steep with nasty loose scree.
The highlight of the outing was going with Bill Rogan, an author and sports radio personality in Denver. While this
was my fifth ascent of Mount Sherman, it was Bill's first 14er ever. My friend took on the
mountain with courage and determination. He was no slouch! Enjoy my photos and videos below.
Bill and I on the summit. It's like another world at 14000+ feet! :)
