Mount Herard, elevation 13,353 ft (4,070 m), is a summit in the Sangre de Cristo Wilderness of the Sangre de Cristo Range in southern Colorado. Originally called Medano Peak, the mountain with seven separate summits was renamed Mount Seven at the request of the Colorado Mountain Club in 1970.[1] In 1984 the mountain's name was changed to honor Ulysses Herard who homesteaded on its slopes in 1876.[1]
