Mount Sneffels

San Juan Mountains, Colorado

The second-highest peak in the San Juan range, Mount Sneffels’ 14,000-foot pinnacle beckons climbers and admirers alike. Fondly known as the “Queen of the San Juans,” it features a stunning face that has garnered it inclusion in films such as John Wayne’s True Grit. Ascend it yourself by taking the scenic Blue Lake Trail within the glacial basin of Mount Sneffels’ 16,566-acre wilderness area for unforgettable panoramic vistas and, with an elevation this high, truly breathtaking views.
