Pikes Peak Backcountry is the story of the other side of Colorado’s best-known mountain – the region west of Pikes Peak (Tava). It was the hunting paradise of the Tabeguache Ute Indians (People of Tava). But the Utes were no match for the flood of white gold seekers and settlers that poured into the central Rockies in the late 1850s.
