San Luis Peak is the highest summit of the La Garita Mountains range in the Rocky Mountains of North America. It is located in the La Garita Wilderness (part of the Rio Grande National Forest) in Saguache County approximately 10 miles (16 km) north of Creede. It is situated rather far to the east of the other fourteeners in the San Juans, and has more of a wilderness setting than many of the other.
San Luis Peak is a relatively straightforward climb, with two hiking routes to the summit, the South Ridge and the East Flank.
