Brainard Lake, Indian Peaks, Front Range, Boulder County, Colorado. The name Indian peaks was selected because many of the peaks within the wilderness are named for Native American tribes of the west. This wilderness area covers nearly 75,000 acres, following the Continental Divide south for nearly 16 miles, with the Rocky Mountain National Park as its northern border. Within Indian Peaks lie Ogallala Peak (13,333 ft.), Paiute Peak (13,083 ft.), Pawnee Peak (12,939 k.), Shoshoni Peak (12,962 ft.), Apache Peak (13,438 ft.), Navajo Peak (13,405 *.), Arikaree Peak (13,146 ft.), Arapahoe Peak (13,392 ft)., and Niwot Ridge.
