Great short hike with spectacular views of James peak, with an awesome hike around James peak lake! Access to this trailhead is only accessible from Rollinsville with a truck or something with a good ground clearance and preferably 4x4.

nice to descend in the beginning of the hike but the hike out was a lung burner. beautiful trail and the lakes are clear. gorgeous!
