This article comprises three sortable tables of major mountain peaks of the U.S.marker State of Coloradomarker.

Topographic elevation is the vertical distance above the reference geoid, a precise mathematical model of the Earth's sea level as an equipotential gravitational surface. Topographic prominence is the elevation difference between the summit and the highest or key col to a higher summit. Topographic isolation is the minimum great circle distance to a point of higher elevation.

This article defines a major mountain peak as a summit with at least 500 meters (1640 feet) of topographic prominence. An ultra prominent peak is a summit with at least 1500 meters (4921 feet) of topographic prominence.

Highest major summits

The following sortable table lists the 50 highest Coloradomarker mountain peaks with at least of topographic prominence.

See the Highest mountain peaks of Colorado for a table of all summits with at least of topographic elevation and at least of topographic prominence.
