Mt. Silverheels is a high peak in a southwestern spur of the Front Range. It rises very dominantly over South Park. It is most often climbed from Highway 9 to the west. The route starts at the second major drainage south of Hoosier Pass, climbs up through an old burn area to Beaver Ridge, descends about 200 feet to Beaver Creek, then climbs 2,000 feet up the gentle west ridge to the summit. There are great views of South Park and the Mosquito and Ten Mile Ranges from the summit.
