The Venable and Comanche trails together form a popular loop hike into the Sangre de Cristo Wilderness Area. The route follows Venable Creek up to the crest of the Sangre de Cristo Range, then traverses the west side of Spring Mountain. From there it crosses Comanche Pass and follows the Comanche Trail back to the trailhead. You might also want to consider bagging two thirteeners along the way. Venable Peak (13,334 ft.) is just 554 feet above the highest point on this trail, and Comanche Peak (13,277 ft.) is 577 feet above Comanche Pass. Both peaks are relatively easy uphill walks from the trail. With an early start the basic loop trail can be walked in one day. But if you want a more relaxed outing I suggest you spend one night either at Comanche Lake or in the basin below the Venable Lakes. There are no nice campsites near the Venable Lakes themselves.
