It is pick your own pace event but my pace tends to be somewhat casual (~1,000 ft per hour or ~1.2 miles per hour on average while ascending).
Huron seems to get most mention in online threads about most scenic 14ers.

It is also one of the relatively easier ones, based on how hikers have voted over the years.

However, it is still a serious hike.
We'll meet at Huron's lower trailhead (Clear Creek/South Winfield) parking area at 6 AM, and begin moving up the trail by 6:15AM. Plan is to summit by 12 PM. Casual pace.
This parking area is also known as 2WD trailhead for Huron Peak (any car can make it).
Most of this info is from 14ers.com website. I suggest you review briefly the route info in the link before signing up.

If you do not already have the Colorado Outdoor Recreation Search and Rescue card (CORSAR) card, I strongly suggest you get one. It is only $3 per year and it is a great effort worth supporting. They have been very busy this year and you never know when you may need help from those guys.

There are plenty of free dispersed camping areas around ghost town of Winfield close to trailhead. A few of us are planning to go there
