Hessie Trailhead: Skyscraper Reservoir

Indian Peaks Wilderness Area

Skyscraper Reservoir lies in the upper reaches of a slender valley between Woodland Mountain (11,893’ – south) and unofficially named Skyscraper Peak (12,383’ – north). The reservoir – no longer maintained but still partially dammed – was built between 1941 and 1947 by private landowners for downstream irrigation and sold to the City of Boulder in 1966. Visitors will enjoy excellent wildlife viewing, camping and fishing opportunities on this varied trek through riparian woodlands, alpine meadows and open tundra between Woodland Lake and Skyscraper Reservoir.
