My Public Lands Roadtrip: Wilderness along the Alpine Loop in Colorado
The Alpine Loop is one of America’s Back-Country Byways, providing off-the-beaten-path trips. Different routes allow you to take short trips, half-day trips, or even multi-day trips with time to camp, fish and explore along the way.
A part of the National Conservation Lands, BLM Colorado wilderness areas along the loop - such Handies Peak, Red Cloud Peak, Uncompahgre and Powderhorn pictured here - offer solitude and rugged, stunning views.
