    The trail from the Resumierdo Campground to Vega Redondo is a beautiful day hike. The elevation gain is considerable but the climb is gradual. The path winds through aspen groves, open wildflower-filled meadows (vegas), tall pines laced with light green moss, and runs parallel and crosses flowing streams, culminating in the large, lush Vega Redondo. Numerous ponds dot the grassy field. Footprints of wildlife abounded. As a camp, this would be a beautiful spot. Make sure to bring the mosquito repellant.

    I went for a three day backpack with my wife and dog.We added a extra portion from the trail notes that made a 18 mile loop. The trail was beautiful and perfect for the westerner looking for a lush, higher elevation route that is relatively flat. There was plenty of water,places to swim and many perfect campsites. I highly recommend this trail (my dog was in heaven)and we saw only one person. I hope to go back with some friends.
