Summit County - Eagle County - Clear Creek County
Quandary Peak is located 7.6 miles south of Breckenridge, Colorado in the Dillon Ranger District of the White River National Forest. Quandary Peak is the highest point in Colorado's Tenmile Range, and ranks 14th among the state’s fourteeners. It’s widely considered among the easiest fourteeners to reach, attributable to a modest distance and well built trail. Still, the 3,300’ climb in just 3.1 miles is no small task, and rocky terrain will challenge even the fittest hikers. Visitors will enjoy sensational panoramas from its summit that include peaks from the Mosquito, Gore, Holy Cross and Collegiate ranges.
