Awesome trail to the lake. My friend and i decided to continue on and turn it into a 14er hike on the Missouri mountain and saw even greater views of the lakes
did missouri lakes and stayed on the back side the first night, came over fancy pass and finished up. super beautiful loop.
Perfect weekend of backpacking. We started with fancy pass to Treasure Cove Lake then headed to Harvey Lake about 4 miles down the trail. Headed back towards Treasure Cove the next day and went over Missouri Pass and to the lakes. Absolutely gorgeous the entire way.
We hiked the fancy pass trail to the Missouri Lakes trail to hike a loop. The trail was beautiful! Made the day of it, stopping to fish at fancy lake and one of the Missouri lakes. The wildflowers were everywhere!
We hiked in over Fancy Pass and camped in the valley on the other side near Treasure Vault Lake. Gorgeous place to camp. Hiked out the next day over to the Missouri Lakes to finish off the loop. Pretty well traveled area because of the relatively short distance, but a very nice overnighter.
Great hike with lots of beautiful features. We hiked over from the Missouri Lakes side after camping there the previous night. Great trail that I would certainly recommend to anyone looking for an alpine experience.
I like hiking in Holy Cross Wilderness. The mountains are beautiful.
beautiful hike - we did the Fancy Pass / Missouri Lakes loop. I strongly recommend doing it from the Fancy Pass side first, as the skree fields would make the descent more difficult than the ascent.
