Summit camp

Summit Camp

Summit Camp is a high mountain peak at an elevation of 3.134m (10,282ft) above the sea level, located in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, in Taos County, New Mexico, United States. It’s one of the highest roads of New Mexico.

Located within the Carson National Forest, the road to the summit is rocky and gravel. It’s a chairlift access trail. This trail can be done only a very narrow time-frame in the summer (end of August). The wind is usually quite strong at mountain areas. High winds blow here all year long. The road to the summit is a ski-station service road pretty steep, with some sections up to 30%.
