Mount Sherman is a fourteener in the U.S. state of Colorado. It is located in the Mosquito Range, approximately eight miles south of Mount Lincoln. It lies on the border between Lake and Park County, approximately seven miles east-southeast of Leadville.
Mount Sherman is one of the most nondescript of the fourteeners, and one of the easiest to climb; it is recommended as a beginner fourteener. It is also the only fourteener that has had a successful aircraft landing on its summit.

“On the 31st of August, 1846, I left Concord in Massachusetts for Bangor and the backwoods of Maine,...
