Thanks to Jonathan Canipe for adding this peak.

This mountain is near Buena Vista on the eastern slope of Colorado, near the Collegiate Peaks. An easy hike, north of the well preserved ghost town of St. Elmo. Several lakes in the area provide an ample water supply and wildlife in the form of Mountain Goat, sheep, deer and elk are fairly common. Use the St. Elmo Topo map for the area. San Isabel Nat. Forest.

    My favorite hike. Steady upward on wagon road. Iron Chest Mine at the top, on the back side of the Mary Murphy Mine. The two mines abut each other from opposite sides of the mountain.
