Kit Carson Mountain Via Willow Lake Trail is a 12.7 mile out and back trail located near Westcliffe, Colorado that features a lake and is only recommended for very experienced adventurers. The trail is primarily used for hiking and is accessible from July until September.
Cool peak in a beautiful area. I approached from the east and camped near south colony lakes. Makes for a long hike, but it was well worth it. Looks like you could play football on the bears playground.
