Description

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.

This arid peak is especially intriguing because it is both dirt bike and ATV legal all the way to the top. Getting to hill climb thousands of feet up to such a spectacular overlook makes this a popular ride on the weekends during peak season. Sources: https://www.summitpost.org/tanner-peak/819437
