Hahns Peak is a summit in Routt County, Colorado, in the United States.[3] With an elevation of 10,774 feet (3,284 m), Hahns Peak is the 1855th highest summit in the state of Colorado.[4]

Hahns Peak was named after Joseph Hahn, a gold miner who, with companions William Doyle and George Wray came to the area in the 1860s.[5] Hahns Peak Village is named after the peak. An old lookout tower remains on the peak's summit. After falling into disrepair, it was restored in the summer of 2016 and 2017.[6]
