Bob and Betty lakes are the high points in a string of lakes perched on a loop hike below the Continental Divide. The Hessie Trailhead is a quarter mile along a road/creek bed that sometimes carries water and always is paved by cobbles hard on even booted feet. The worst parts are bordered by a trail that lifts hikers above this hassle. High clearance vehicles can make it all the way to the Hessie Trailhead and less-than-abundant parking. A bridge carries hikers across North Fork Middle Boulder Creek. Rather ironic signs near the bridge prohibit vehicles from splashing across the creek and also prohibit parking at a spot blocking an obvious vehicle ford.
