Indian Peaks Wilderness

The Indian Peaks Wilderness is a wilderness area in the north central Rockies of Colorado. Part of the Arapaho and Roosevelt National Forest it includes 7 peaks over 13,000 feet in elevation with the highest peak being North Arapaho Peak (13,502 feet). The wilderness is just south of local favorite Rocky Mountain National Park and north of the James Peak Wilderness. Indian Peaks straddles the Continental Divide and provides water to the city of Boulder in the form of snow runoff.

Boulder's water runs off the high peaks into alpine lakes.
This water is crystal clear and icy cold.
