BILL HAMMONS' GUIDE TO COLORADO FOURTEENERS

Fourteeners in Colorado's Mosquito Range



The Mosquito Range is a high mountain range in the Rockies of central Colorado which runs approximately 40 miles south from southern Summit County. This range consisting primarily of granite was formed approximately 65 million years ago, and the northern end's U-shaped valleys were created during Pleistocene Epoch glaciation. The Mosquitos are traversed in only two places by backroads: Mosquito Pass and Weston Pass. The Pike National Forest covers much of the range.

The Mosquito Range's Fourteeners include:

  • Mt. Sherman
  • Mt. Democrat
  • Mt. Bross
  • Mt. Lincoln
