The Elkhead Mountains are a relatively unknown and remote small mountain sub-range west of the Park Range near Steamboat Springs, Colorado. Due to the fact that this range is completely devoid of any summit over 11,000 ft., the opportunity for solitude is great. People rarely venture into this area of the state even though this range offers some great hiking experiences. According to Summitpost.org, most of the peaks in the Elkheads see very few ascents, but Hahns Peak, the eastern-most peak in the range, is a popular climb for residents of Steamboat Springs. Additionally, there are only three peaks within this range that have trails to the summit: Black Mountain, Sand Mountain, and Hahns Peak.
