Lake Haiyaha is a 3.7 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near Estes Park, CO that features a waterfall and is rated as moderate. The trail is primarily used for hiking and walking and is accessible from June until November.
Really liked this lake, it's surrounded by tall mountains. The lake features what's thought to be the oldest tree in park on the rocks near lake. Climbed pretty intense after Dream lake but wasn't too bad and evened out in some spots.
Beautiful views all along the way to Lake Haiyaha. There were also other smaller lake to see along the way that were just as pretty. The last 0.25 miles before reaching Lake Haiyaha were pretty rocky and slick from the snow so just hike with caution. The views were totally worth it!
Great hike. Once past the normal lake hikes much less crowded. Beautiful views along the way.
If you are trying to get away from the crowds, pick the Haiyaha trail which starts about 0.7 miles before reaching Emerald Lake. Nice views.
Added Lake Haiyaha to Emerald Lake for an even more rewarding hike. The rocky terrain and boulder field around and above the lake make it very different from the other 3 lakes on this hike. It is also much less crowded.
Made our way to the lake from the waterfall. Amazing hike and not as popular as other trails.
Another great alpine lake trail. You see Nymph Lake and Dream Lake along the way. Around 1.5 miles into the trail you are high up and can see all the way to Sprague Lake and Bear Lake. Stunning views of Longs Peak the whole way. The Lake at the end doesn't disappoint.
The lake was absolutely beautiful! Emerald green clear water with amazing mountain backdrop. Great mix of shady paths, rocky terrain, and fantastic views.
Beautiful hike! Amazing lake. The trail is moderate until you get to the end where you must climb Boulder fields to get there.
Great hike. Great views of Sprague Lake, Bear Lake and Nymph lake all the different sea levels here in the Rockies
Great views of the lake and mountains. Very rocky around the lake but worth the climb!
Great trail,great hike,made me work a bit more...great views...
Went up to the park on a warm, sunny weekend day, jam packed with people, but not a ton on this trail. Well kept trail, amazing views, fun rock scrambling, and a beautiful lake. I'm glad we did this one.
Awesome hike, not too hard and great path all the way up.
great day hike
Just stunning. This was an easy, well-marked hike. Although it was foggy the day we hiked, I would imagine the views were amazing. The lakes looked mystical with the fog. Would definitely do this again.
