The Never Summer Wilderness shares its eastern boundary with Rocky Mountain National Park. This 21,000-acre wilderness includes landscapes from forested ridges to steep tundra ranging in elevation from 8,900 to 12,520 feet. Spruce, fir and lodgepole pine blanket the lower elevations. This area receives large amounts of snow, and four of its peaks have names that hint at their cloud-kissed heights: Cirrus, Cumulus, Stratus and Nimbus. This area is the scenic backdrop to portions of Trail Ridge Road's path through Rocky Mountain National Park.
