Latir Peak

Latir Peak (12,708 feet) is the second-highest mountain in the Latir Group after Venado Peak. It is the namesake of the surrounding Latir Peak Wilderness area. Latir Peak is the 12th highest ranked summit in New Mexico with 328 feet of prominence. The broad ridges and gentle slopes (all except the steeper loose western slopes) provide easy (Class 1-2) hiking routes to its large rounded summit.

Latir Mesa provides solitude with astonishing views of surrounding mountain ranges and pristine wilderness. The sweeping views reach from the beautiful sub-alpine Latir Lakes below to the majestic high peaks of Southern Colorado and Northern New Mexico.
