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.
