Situated between Mount Evans (14,265′) and Mount Bierstadt (14,065′) in Colorado’s Arapaho National Forest, this rugged peak looks impressive any time. Throw in stormy, fall skies, high contrast caused by the strong afternoon shadows and a perfectly placed spot of light on the peak and this mountain looks intimidating.
The route from Guanella Pass to Bierstadt, across Sawtooth to Evans and back is a very popular hiking route that is just over 10 miles round-trip. Parts of the route are considered moderate in difficulty with Mother Nature oftentimes being the big wildcard with fast-changing weather at this high of altitude.
