Range San Juan Mountains
Sunshine Peak is a fourteen thousand foot mountain peak in the US state of Colorado. It is located in the San Juan Mountains in Hinsdale County.
Sunshine Peak has the dubious distinction of being the lowest of Colorado's 54 official fourteeners. It is also not particularly independent from its higher neighbor Redcloud Peak, with a topographic prominence of 481 feet (147 m) (the minimum standard for an independent fourteener is 300 feet (91 m)). However it has more and steeper local relief than many of the other fourteeners. For example, it rises 4,450 feet (1,356 m) above the townsite of Sherman to the south in only 1.2 miles (1.9 km).
