This gentle, uncrowded hike follows an old mining road then travels on the Gore Range Trail (GRT), climbing a lateral moraine left by two epochs of glaciers. The GRT wanders around the top of the forested glacial debris, past many small ponds, some covered with lily pads. Conifers grow thickly on the moraine—mainly lodgepole pine interspersed with a few aspen, spruce, and fir. You’ll notice many dead lodgepole pines, killed by the mountain pine beetle. Dropping down to cross South Rock Creek, the trail crosses a few boggy areas then climbs to an unnamed lake. The peaceful destination provides views of Red Peak, with its craggy ridge, and the Thorn.
