Important note: Culebra peak is on private property, and any hiking and climbing must be arranged in advance with the land owner (Cielo Vista Ranch).
Unlike most of the other maps in the 14ers series, the fourteeners on each side of 14ers Map 3 are located far across the state from one another. The front side shows Longs Peak in the Front Range - the northernmost Colorado fourteener - along with a large section of the surrounding Rocky Mountain National Park trail system. This includes access from Longs Peak Trailhead from the east via East Longs Peak Trail as well as access from the North via Bear Lake, Sprague Lake and Bierstadt Lake Trailheads via North Longs Peak Trail, Boulder Brook Trail and Glacier Gorge Trail.
Culebra Peak on the back side of Map 3 is in the Sangre de Cristo Range and is the southernmost fourteener in Colorado. It also has the distinction of being completely on and surrounded by private property as part of the Sangre de Cristo land grant, with access controlled by the property owner (currently Cielo Vista Ranch Co.). The Culebra Peak map shows the Ranch North Headquarters gate location and coordinates (where hikers coordinate with Ranch staff) along with the trailheads and primitive routes to Culebra Peak and nearby Red Mountain. This is Map 3 of 16 14ers Maps covering all Colorado 14ers.
