Rawah Lakes Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The Rawah Wilderness Area has long been recognized as one of Colorado’s special places. A portion of it was classified as a protected area by the Forest Service as far back as 1927, and with the passage of the Wilderness Act in 1964 it became one of America’s very first officially designated wilderness areas.

This hike will take you into an area known as the Lakes District that lies in the rugged southern half of the Rawah Wilderness. More than two dozen lakes adorn the eastern slopes of the Medicine Bow Mountain in the Lake District."
