Elk Range from Electric Pass 1

Electric Pass, Maroon Bells Wilderness

From Electric Pass in the Maroon Bells Wilderness, this is the Rocky Mountain landscape that stretches out from this point at 13,485'. The hike to reach this point is a grind - ~ 3,500 vertical feet in just under 5 miles. Switchbacks will be your friend, but the view at the top provides stunning looks at several 13ers, including Hunter, Keefe and Hilliard Peak. Behind those looking west are the 14ers - Pyramid Peak, and North and South Maroon Peak. This images shows an unnamed 13er in the foreground. Photo © copyright by Rob Greebon.
