Echo Lake & Chicago Lakes Trails Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The Echo Lake portion of this route is an easy, almost flat family route around the lake, surrounded by multiple views of Front Range peaks. You can add a much longer out-and-back on a spectacular tour of the Chicago Lakes Trail.

The extension on the rolling Chicago Lakes Trail will give you outstanding views of the Mount Evans massif and its lofty neighbors as you enter the Mount Evans Wilderness area. Snow arrives early and stays late because of the elevation."
