Whale Peak

Whale Peak

Whale Peak is a high mountain peak at an elevation of 3.940m (12,926ft) above the sea level, located in Summit County, in the U.S. state of Colorado. It’s one of the highest mountain roads of Colorado.

The road to the summit, located in the the Rocky Mountains, is gravel, rocky, tippy and bumpy at times. 4wd and high clearance vehicle required. Stay away if you're scared of heights. Expect a trail pretty steep. Wet conditions may make for tough driving along the muddy road. It’s an old mine road called Montezuma road. The road is impassable from September to July. Great trail for experienced wheelers. Avoid driving in this area if unpaved mountain roads aren't your strong point.
