Tanner Peak Map

Tanner Peak rises outside the town of Canon City to a height of 9,340 feet above sea level. This is one of the most prominent close-to-town peaks and is easily accessible from multiple aspects. The route shown here is one of the most popular, beginning at a convenient trailhead on County Road 143.


From the craggy summit of the mountain, you'll enjoy spectacular views of Pikes Peak to the north and the Sange de Cristo range forming the western horizon.

While this arid peak makes for an attractive hiking or running objective, don't expect a pristine singletrack adventure. Rather, this entire trail is ATV legal and sees substantial traffic, especially on weekends during peak season.
