Over the years, congress has been responsible for designating areas unique for the special characteristics and the opportunities they offer.  Within the Arapaho and Roosevelt National Forests and Pawnee National Grassland, there are a number of places that meet this criteria.  Along with our ten Wilderness areas, there is also the Cache la Poudre Wild and Scenic River and the Arapaho National Recreation Area (ANRA).  The forest maintains Mount Evans Recreation Area and Brainard Lake Recreation Area!
