Neota Wilderness Trails Professional Review and Guide

"From the vantage point of one such peak, Iron Mountain, I marvel at the contradictions of the landscape around me. One of Colorado’s largest wild tracts stretches north and south, ranging 70 miles from the northern rawah wilderness on through Rocky Mountain National Park and clear to the southern tip of the Indian Peaks.

Three valleys containing wet meadows spread radially from the common hub of 12,265-foot Iron Mountain, a peak that lies just outside the wilderness boundary. Streams meander widely through open valley floors amid thick riparian vegetation of willows and sedges. A spruce-fir forest borders the valleys and inches upward several hundred feet in elevation until foiled by timberline. Common forest wildlife, including deer, elk, beaver, and blue grouse (as well as an occasional moose), inhabit the wilderness. This trail guide includes descriptions of Zimmerman Lake, Trap Park, Neota Creek, and Trap Park to Neota Creek."
