The Indian Peaks Wilderness Area is just up Highway 7 from Lyons, with a left turn on Highway 72. 

The USDA Forest Service has been particularly concerned about wear and tear on Indian Peaks trails. Our guest, Indian Peaks guidebook author, Kent Dannen, has helped the Forest Service convey proper trail use and care to the public, and was awarded a Certificate of Appreciation for outstanding volunteer service in developing educational materials which help to manage and protect the Indian Peaks Wilderness. 

Join Kent to learn more about the landscape you love, emphasizing stewardship of this protected area and highlighting its amazing scenery and fascinating natural history.
