Tabequache Peak and the neighboring Mount Shavano are a set of fourteeners in the southernmost area of the Sawatch Range. They are often climbed in one day. This peak is named after the Tabeguache branch of the Utes. Only three other Colorado 14ers have names of American Indian origin. They are Mount Shavano, Mount Antero, and Little Bear Peak.
The Tabeguache-Shavano area was developed for mining--briefly and unsuccessfully.
The actual mark is stamped "Tabequache." This spelling is now considered an alternate name.
