ESWA is committed to the health and preservation of the four Wilderness Areas located in Eagle and Summit Counties, Colorado - Eagles Nest, Holy Cross, Ptarmigan Peak and a portion of the Flat Tops Wilderness (see map below). We'd love to have you join us! 

We help the US Forest Service look after these Wilderness Areas. While they contain some remote and rugged terrain, they are nevertheless fragile ecosystems that are slow to heal and are being "loved to death." More than 50,000 visitors hiked on one trail alone in Eagles Nest last year! 

We invite you to view our website to learn more about ESWA and how you can get involved in helping protect these precious Wilderness areas.
