Beautiful hike! The drive to the trailhead is just as fun. For planning purposes, be aware it takes an hour from Steamboat downtown to get to the trailhead. We had to turn around at Lost Lake instead of going on since we hadn't realized how long it would take.
I did this trail as part of longer ride from Dumont Lake to Long Lake. Blooming wildflowers, clear lakes, open meadows, big skies.
Beautiful trail and fairly secluded, but mosquitoes can get ugly.
