I love this area. It can be crowded at times, but if you get in far enough on any trail, the crowds disappear pretty quickly. Coney Flats area is one of my favorites.
I'm lucky, I see this area everyday.
So many good routes!
fun trip, Colorado Mtn Tour
Started with Audubon and Notabon. The first peaks I climbed in this range. I'll go back for the others
Located just south of Rocky Mountain National Park, the Indian Peaks Wilderness is one of the most accessible hiking and climbing regions in the West.
Within Indian Peaks lie N Arapahoe Peak (13,502 ft), Apache Peak (13,438 ft.), Navajo Peak (13,405 ft*.), S. Arapahoe Peak (13,397), Ogalalla Peak (13,333 ft.), Mt. Audubon (13,233 ft.), Parry Peak (13,391 ft.), James Peak (13,294 ft.), Arikaree Peak (13,146 ft.), Paiute Peak (13,083 ft.), Mt. Toll (12,979 ft.), Shoshoni Peak (12,962 ft.), "Ooh La La!" (12,945 ft.), Pawnee Peak (12,939 ft.), Jasper Peak (12,923 ft.), Elk Tooth (12,848 ft.), Mt. Neva (12,814 ft.,), Haimovi Tower (12,220 ft.), Lone Eagle Peak (11,940 ft.), and Niwot Ridge. There are four trail passes: Devil's Thumb (11,747 ft.), Arapahoe (11,906 ft.), Pawnee (12,541 ft.), and Buchanan (11,837 ft.).
and that goes for me also. i've enjoyed fine outings on the arapahoes, navajo/apache and audubon/paiute(in a serious windstorm!). an interesting area just outside my back door and i can't wait to do some more extensive exploration in the coming years.
