Collegiate Peaks Wilderness Area

Noah's Ark has permitted access to the Collegiate Peaks Wilderness Area, which boasts 8 of the tallest peaks in the Continental United States and 105 miles of trails across 166,938 acres. We also have permitted access to the Buffalo Peaks Wilderness Area, named for two high-domed peaks that dominate the area. It is also known as one of the best wilderness areas in the state for those seeking solitude. Without a doubt, we have some of the best views in the country!


Noah's Ark follows Leave No Trace principles on all backcountry ventures.

Backpacking Trips:

Choose your length of time on the trail - anywhere from 3 to 6 days. Trips can be arranged to cover varied distances, depending on the desire and ability of your group.  Ask us about incorporating options like fishing an alpine lake, attempting to summit a 13,000 or 14,000 ft. peak, solo times, or team building games. Longer trail trips allow for the most flexibility and quality in terms of programming options, trip itineraries, and distances. Click on any of the sample trips below to learn more.
