COLORADO – For many, summer in Colorado means hiking 14ers. None of these mountains are for beginner hikers. They’re high-altitude, often decently long hikes (at least 7-8 miles for most), and some of them include some serious exposure or proper climbing. But some of them area harder than others, and some are easier than others. The Virtual sherpa has ranked all 58 by difficulty, making it easier for those planning their next big hike to figure out where to go next.

Now that I have hiked all 58 Colorado 14ers, this video talks about my experience hiking them and ranking them by difficulty.
