Longs Peak is one of Colorado’s most popular 14ers and is the highest point in Rocky Mountain National Park. Many people think of Longs Peak as a hike, but it’s actually a scramble. Despite its popularity, it is also one of the most difficult Class III 14er scrambles in Colorado. The majestic scramble is worth every ounce of sweat and perseverance but do not underestimate its difficulty.
