"Ooh La La!"
Lone Eagle Peak
Stone Lake Boulders
Located in the Arapaho and the Roosevelt National Forests in Colorado, the Indian Peaks Wilderness area was added to the National Wilderness Preservation System by Congress in 1978. The name was selected because many of the peaks within the wilderness are named for Native American tribes of the west. This wilderness area covers nearly 75,000 acres, following the Continental Divide south for nearly 16 miles, with the Rocky Mountain National Park as its northern border.
Please refer to the individual mountain and route descriptions as different trailheads are often used.
If you plan to stay overnight, a permit from the U.S. Forest Service is required between June 1 and September 15. Camping regulations will be given to you when you apply.

Move up and right to a subsidiary thumb that you can stand on to place some gear. Fr...[more] Browse More Classics in CO
