If it’s solitude you’re looking for… head to Castle Peak Wilderness Study Area in Eagle County, Colorado. It’s only 8 miles north of the town of Eagle, and not far from more popular destinations like Vail and Breckenridge.  But unlike these mountain meccas, Castle Peak offers 11,631 acres of primitive backcountry and unconfined landscapes to enjoy away from the hustle of everyday life.

Hike up the mountain, which reaches 11,275 feet at its peak, or find a place to camp or fish along the trails. The springs and small lakes within the wilderness study area support aquatic habitats and native trout.

Because this special area is a serene location where you can feel close to nature, please make sure you observe leave no trace ethics to keep it this way for future visitors. CLICK HERE to plan your #mypubliclandsroadtrip to Castle Peak.

Denver, Co National Historic Register of Places #82002290 The Spangler House is one of a series of six designed by prominent Denver architects William Lang and Marshall Pugh for real estate developer Ralph Voorhees. For many years, the house was home to Jane Spangler, widow of former Arapahoe County sheriff Mike Spangler. She moved to this house in the late 1890s to be near her sister, Mrs. Ralph Voorhees. The architects were influenced by the Romanesque style in the design of this 1891 2½-story stone and shingle-sided building. The entry to the house is through a porch with a round arched entry of large radiating stone voussoirs
