Mount Evans & the Lost Creek Wilderness

Mount Evans begins in sub-alpine forests and rises 14,264 feet to the stark beauty of the tundra environment. A wide array of wildlife and plant life can be found on its slopes and forests. Numerous hiking trails, from easy to advanced, ensure that you will see an area that appeals to you.

Maintaining the wilderness in the most pristine state possible takes volunteers, so if you're interested in playing an active role in helping to preserve Mount Evans Wilderness and Lost Creek Wilderness, please email acting director, Mike Israel. You can also call 303.748.8709 to volunteer or for more information.

Spring will be coming soon and it will be time to hit the trail! We have numerous activities, events, and trainings planned for 2013 and you won't want to miss the fun!
