Culebra Peak, with an elevation of 14,047 feet, is the 41st highest Fourteener in the state of Colorado. This peak also has the distinctions of both being the southernmost Colorado Fourteener (it's only ten miles from the New Mexico state line) and the only one entirely on private land. The land was formerly owned by an Enron executive and is now known under new owners as Cielo Vista Ranch.
Culebra Peak is open for climbing most summer weekends. The owners prefer to have five or more climbers (not necessarily in the same party)
on the mountain at once, and charge from $100 per person ($150 for both Red Mountain and Culebra) on a non-holiday weekend to $300 per
person on July 4th weekend for unlimited climbing, fishing, and hiking (your average ho-hum (and free!) 14er doesn't look so bad now, does
it?). Start and end are by the ranch's gate.
