Eagles Nest Wilderness
The Eagles Nest wilderness encompasses 133,688 acres on the White River and Arapaho National Forests. Elevations within the wilderness range from 7,850 to 13,534 feet. Over 180 miles of constructed trails are available and they are maintained at several levels of difficulty. Most of the area presents a mental and physical challenge to the advanced hiker. Most of the trails within the wilderness end in high valleys, often beside beautiful alpine lakes. Only two trails actually cross the range, though unofficial routes cross some of the high passes.
Topo maps covering the wilderness: Mount Powell, Piney Peak, Squaw, Willow Lakes, Dillon, Frisco, Vail Pass and Vail East.
