San Juan National Forest Re-opened

The Stage 3 fire and access restrictions to the San Juan National Forest have been rolled back to a Stage 2 condition which means access to the forest is once more open to the public. However, fire conditions still remain high and we are currently in the middle of a strong heat wave. Consult current regulations with the San Juan NF before planning any trips. Fines for violations are significant.

LoJ: #499 (G & M: #524) / 13,180' Babcock Peak

Range › San Juan Range
Quadrangle › La Plata

Peak Summary

Note: Yet another revision to the La Plata group has led to a higher ranking for Babcock. G&M used the USGS map elevation on the "east" summit of 13,149, hence a ranking of #524, but the "middle" summit is obviously (once you climb it) the highest of the three summit points of Babcock, evidently missing a contour line on the USGS map. So Roach & LoJ have given Babcock's middle summit an extrapolated elevation of 13,180 and a rank of #499.
