The summit is the tripoint of Clear Creek, Gilpin, and Grand counties. The peak is the highest point in Gilpin County and the James Peak Wilderness.
James Peak is named after Dr. Edwin James, the botanist on Major Stephen H. Long's expedition of 1820. James is the first known person to successfully climb Pikes Peak.
James Peak has a broad south slope that is very popular with hikers. The steep, sheer walls of the east face, offer multiple technical couloirs for snow climbers, skiers, and snowboarders. From south to north, these routes are named 'Bailout', 'Starlight', 'Sky Pilot', 'Shooting Star', and 'Superstar'.
There's a hiking trail (T2) called James Peak South leading to the summit. James Peak is one of the 29 peaks along the multi-day Divide Trails - North America.
