You will be hiking on the Gore Range Trail, which winds its way through the Eagles Nest Wilderness. The Gore Range, Gore Creek, and other landmarks bearing that name derive from Irish baronet Sir St. George Gore who hunted in the Rockies in the 1850s. The story goes that he traveled in real style and was served meals on fine bone china and drank vintage wine from crystal goblets. The Gore Range Trail extends north for about 50 miles to south of View of Copper Mountain ski runs from the turnoff to Kremmling. Its southern terminus is at Copper Mountain. This southern section is also known as the Wheeler Trail, which leads to the two charming Wheeler Lakes. The lakes, like the Wheeler Trail and Wheeler Flats (the area around Copper Mountain), are named for John S. Wheeler, who arrived in Colorado in 1859 with other gold prospectors. Eventually he moved to Summit County and established a hay ranch in the meadow that is now Copper Mountain Ski Resort.
