Horseshoe Mountain

Horseshoe Mtn, Colorado(4236 m) 13,898 feet

Horseshoe Mtn is a centennial peak (72nd highest in Colorado) that is shadowed by it's more popular though less aestetic neighbor Mt. Sherman. It is an easy class I walk-up. We did this hike on a weekend and saw only one other person on the trail. The views of the namesake cirque are breathtaking as one hikes up an old mining road to a saddle between Horseshoe Mountain and Peerless Mountain.
