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.

Almost at Dream Lake. Even despite the crowds this hike will always be one of my favorites because of peaceful views like this #rockymountainnationalpark #nymphlake #bearlaketrail #river #stream #hiking #optoutside #rei1440project #neverstopexploring #landscape #nature #mountains #rockymointains #wildernessculture #ourplanetdaily #dreamlake #nationalpark #forest #colorado #priime #findyourpark #usinterior @rockynps (at Dream Lake, Rocky Mountain National Park)
