Thanks to Kirk Mallory for adding this peak.
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.
Thanks to Kirk Mallory for this description.
