From the overlook on highway 62, part of the Continental Divide, Mt. Sneffels stands tall at 14,150 feet above sea level. Mt. Sneffels is only 7 miles or so straight from Telluride, but it takes 30 minutes to reach this overlook by car, and even longer when accessing the trailhead in Yankee Boy Basin, by 4-wheel drive only. We camped as close as we could to Sneffels when my husband hiked it a couple of years ago.
