Colorado for 4 days, Planning to start from Durango

Jump to last reply

I am planning on a 4 day trip to Colorado. Yes, a short trip :). This will be my first trip to Colorado. I am planning to start from Durango as my primary objective is San Juan Parkway(Millon Dollar Highway). So I will be driving Durango-Ouray-Montrose. This is the only part of the trip that I have planned.
There are many 14ers around this highway - Handies, Sneffels etc. Which one is the easiest to climb? I am a beginner when it comes to climbing. If there is a trail, I don't mind the distance or the height, but if we need special climbing gear, I don't think I can do it. Are any of the 14ers in the San Juan area motor-able?

I have read that Pikes and Evans are motor-able. Are these the only motor-able 14ers? If these are the only motorable peaks, I can drive to these peaks. I will be renting a car from Durango. Can any mid-size or full size car climb these peaks, or do I have to select any specific car? Load - just 2 (Driver + 1 Passenger)
