Little Giant Peak

Little Giant Peak

Little Giant Peak is a high mountain peak at an elevation of 3.727m (12,227ft) above the sea level located in San Juan County, Colorado, United States. 

It’s one of the highest mountain roads in Colorado. Avoid driving in this area if unpaved mountain roads aren't your strong point. Stay away if you're scared of heights. It is recommended that beginner riders avoid this road. Only high clearance 4WD vehicles. Near the summit there’s a very scenic alpine lake called Arrastra Gulch. Be sure to have experience in back roads if you attempt this trail.

The surface of the road is gravel and bumpy with embedded rocks. With such a high summit altitude the road can be closed anytime due to snowfalls. The zone is prone to heavy mist and can be dangerous in low visibility conditions. The road to the summit is precarious, offering the best in drop-offs and a boulder-lined roadbed.

The road is totally impassable from October to June. It’s a real challenging road and a true test of your vehicle and your stamina because the road abounds in twists and turns with wheels sometimes hanging above the precipice.
