Mount Antero - 14,271 Feet

Mount Antero is known for its gemstone deposits and has one of the highest concentrations of aquamarine in the United States. The upper mountain holds many private mining claims, some of which are actively being mined with heavy equipment, making the area a bit of a mess. Via Baldwin Gulch, a rough 4WD road goes all the way to 13,900 feet on Antero, so it's a popular summer destination for more than just hikers. Antero is named in honor of Chief Antero of the Uintah band of the Ute.

The most difficult part of climbing Mount Antero is getting close to the summit; You'll either have to walk the entire road, resulting in a 15.5 mile roundtrip hike or drive/ride up the road. If you drive up, we suggest parking below treeline so your climb is more than just a cake walk from the end of the road. Above the active mine area, follow the standard route up Antero's south ridge.
