The last known grizzly bear in Colorado was killed in the wilderness in 1979. Some believe that it is still home to a few grizzlies, but there is no sufficient evidence yet to prove this.
The wilderness area contains: 32 lakes; many peaks above 13,300 feet (4,100 m), the highest of which is Conejos Peak at 13,300 feet; and 180 miles (290 km) of hiking trails, that includes 42 miles (68 km) of the Continental Divide Trail.
