Peak Summary

Overlook Point was considered the highest 12er in Colorado prior to Lidar re-evaluation which added seven feet in elevation, making this a ranked 13er. A moderately long but pleasant hike through mostly tundra country with abundant wildflowers leads to this Class 2 summit that offers a stunning view looking down into Needle Creek and the Chicago Basin area with the three 14ers located at the head. Access to the trailhead requires a lengthy drive on mostly graded dirt road from out of Durango.
