Culebra Peak is Colorado's southernmost fourteener, and is only 10 miles north of New Mexico. The only access to Culebra Peak is through the Taylor Ranch, which charges $40 per person (as of 1999). A steep road leads to some good camping at treeline around 11,600 feet. From there, it is a straightforward climb to the ridge, and then an easy hike over a couple of false summits to the true summit.
