The Park Range is home to one of Colorado's most prominent peaks - Mount Zirkel. Although this range does not possess any summits over 12,180 feet, the area is home to many wonderful summits and the Mount Zirkel Wilderness Area. This range sits just south of Wyoming, northwest of Steamboat Springs. This range is roughly 40 miles long and rises steeply out of the Yampa River basin. Glaciation has left its distinctive mark of high valleys ending in rugged cirques. Over 150 miles of trails provide access and the wilderness area, which offers a variety of recreational opportunities including several quite difficult climbs.
