Challenger Point is a popular hiking place that is located near Kit Carson Mountain. These 2 points are among the hard hiking trails around and are recommended to conquer only if you are an experienced hiker. With the height of more than 14,000 feet, lightning is a common occurrence here. The semi-permanent ice-patch and the risk of thunderstorms at Kit Carson make it hard for climbers to finish the trail in a day. Carrying camping tent and other equipment is recommended.
