Flat Tops is a mountain range located in Colorado within the Routt and White River National Forests.[1] The area is home to 110 Ponds and Lakes.[2]

Much of the range is within the boundary of the Flat Tops Wilderness Area, the Flat Tops Wilderness Area can be accessed by Colorado Rd 7 through the town of Yampa, in Routt County Colorado. 

The Flat Tops range is home to a wide variety of plants and animals, including many large mammals such as Moose, Elk, Mule deer, Black bear, and Cougars. This area has been affected by the non-native plant species, Yellow toadflax [3].
