Rocky Mountain National Park’s East Inlet Trail is well known to hikers for its scenic waterfalls and gorgeous alpine lakes. For 7.8 miles the trail follows a fastflowing creek through a pristine U-shaped valley, passing two waterfalls and four lakes along the way. In an effort to maintain the pristine quality of the valley the Park Service restricts overnight camping to 7 established sites along the trail. You will be assigned a campsite when you receive your backcountry permit. My favorite sites are the Lake Verna and Upper East Inlet Campsites, but unless you make advance reservations you will probably have to settle for one of the sites further down the canyon. The hike described here ends at Fourth Lake; however if you are looking for more adventure you will find a faint, unmaintained trail than continues from Fourth Lake further up the inlet to Fifth Lake. Fifth Lake is not well visited because it is 500 feet higher than Fourth Lake, and the steep, primitive trail is often obliterated by winter avalanches.
