Mount Meeker, elevation 13,916 ft (4,242 m), is a summit in the Front Range of northern Colorado. The mountain is southwest of Estes Park in Rocky Mountain National Park. Rising over 9,000 ft above the western Great Plains, the peak is easily visible from the Denver area. Due to its location in relation to Longs Peak, Mount Meeker is actually more prominent along the Front Range. The peak is considered harder to climb, technically, than Longs Peak.
