Here Is The Most Remote, Isolated Spot Close To Denver And It’s Positively Breathtaking

The Rawah Wilderness just west of Fort Collins is one of Colorado’s most overlooked treasures and one so unbelievably stunning it’ll leave you speechless. Just before the Colorado Rockies fade into the Medicine Bow Mountains of Wyoming, are nearly 75,000 glorious acres of protected land with 76 miles of trails, 26 named lakes, and an abundance of wildlife, glacier-carved alpine valleys, and towering 12,000-foot peaks. The remarkable Rawah Wilderness is one of the most remote, isolated spots near Denver, where you’re likely to see more four-legged creatures than fellow homo-sapiens and are sure to be privy to scenery, serenity, and solitude that is unmatched.
