Mount Sherman

Mount Sherman

Mount Sherman is a high mountain peak at an elevation of 3.878m (12,723ft) above the sea level, located in Lake County, in the U.S. state of Colorado. It’s one of the highest mountain roads of Colorado.

The summit is located in the Mosquito Range of the Rocky Mountains of North America. The road to the summit is very rough, tippy and bumpy at times. It’s totally impassable in winters, often until July 4th or later. The peak is named for the great Union General William Tecumseh Sherman who, during the Civil War, practiced a scorched earth policy while marching to Atlanta in 1864. The trail is narrow with few places for passing so meeting someone can be a challenge. The trail to the summit is called County Road 2B. It’s an old mining road. Keep an eye on the weather for thunderstorms and lightning. Near the summit there are remants of several abandoned old mining buildings. The road can be driven in many stock SUVs equipped with 4x4 & higher clearance. However, the road is continuously rocky and does present some degree of clearance challenges for stock SUVs.
