Music Mountain is the 333rd tallest peak in Colorado. Lucky threes!
At 13,380 feet tall, it sits between neighbors Tijeras and Milwaukee Peaks. It is named after Music Pass, which reportedly gained its name from the sound of the jet stream crossing the Sangre de Cristo mountain range. The wind caressing the high peaks of the Sangres formed tall sand dunes west of the north-south mountain range, recently designated as Great Sand Dunes National Park. Music Mountain is one of only a few 13ers found within the Great Sand Dunes National Preserve.
