Before you start your Colorado fourteener campervan adventure, we first need to know what exactly a fourteener is and why all the buzz? A fourteener is a mountain peak with an elevation of at least 14,000ft. With 96 fourteeners throughout the US, Colorado has 53 fourteeners to choose from (careful, some will say 58), all ranging in different levels of difficulty, meaning there is an option for any skill set. Since these hikes are at such high elevations, the only time you can hike them comfortably is between June to October. Unless you are hard-core, you don’t want to be hiking in several feet of snow and ice!
