Little Bear Peak, or simply Little Bear, is one of the fourteeners of the US state of Colorado. It lies at the southern end of the Sangre de Cristo Range, which is the northern section of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. Little Bear is just southwest of Blanca Peak, one of the highest and most topographically prominent of the Colorado fourteeners.
Like the rest of the Blanca Massif, Little Bear is composed of pre-Cambrian Granite estimated to be approximately 1.8 billion years old. The peak sits atop a long ridge separating two glacier-carved valleys.
