      Elkhorn Peak and Crow Peak are the most prominent land marks on this end of the Elkhorn Range.
      Miners have been roaming the area for years and the historic town of Elkhorn was the hub of much of this activity. Most of the trails and roads of these mountains were laid down by fortune hunters, big game hunters, and ranchers looking for cheap grazing in the summer months.
      The town of Boulder is your best bet for food and gas.
