Indian Peaks this week: permits?

Postby tuan » Mon Jul 16, 2012 3:23 pm

I was thinking of doing a four day loop starting at fourth of july; I have only camped out up there in the spring and fall outside of the permit season. Where does one go about getting an overnight wilderness permit for Indian Peaks?
thanks.

Backcountry Permits:

To reduce ecological impact of visitors in the Indian Peaks Wilderness, the US Forest Service allocates Backcountry Permits for the wilderness from June 1 to September 15. A limited number of permits are available for each of 17 Backcountry Zones (Camping is not permitted between May 1 to November 30 in the Four Lakes Backcountry Zone). Due to limited availability, it is recommended that you request your permit as far in advance as possible before your outing. Permits may be obtained by mail or in person from the following locations.
