This trail is close to Denver and easier to get away. Once you see the trail head, it will be a short 4x4 road up to trail head. There are several nice camp spots on this road. You will see trailhead on the left and parking on your right. Trail start of well mark, then it turns a little confusing because lot of tree block off the main trail and mislead where you should be. You can get lost easy, so looks ahead to see further to help make your way. Nice hike and great view.

Great hike convenient to the Denver metro area. It's one of the easier hikes to an alpine lake above treeline I've been on. Still several snow fields to cross, but they've shrunk a lot in the last couple of weeks. Bring a rod! This lake is full of 12 - 20" trout!
