Kit Carson Peak is Colorado's 23rd highest mountain and one of the fourteeners. There are multiple routes to the summit with this following the north ridge from Willow Lake. Begin at the Willow and South Crestone Trailhead up to Willow Lake. Hike along the north side of the lake to the east end and up to the bottom of the north ridge of Kit Carson. Climbing from here requires some navigating and is mostly class 3 with some class 4 sections. Be sure when grabbing hand holds to test every hold as they have been known to come loose.
