Love this trail. Usually not very crowded. Make the extra extra mile hike up to Windy Peak. Hiked in February. Bring extra traction.

So glad we went with the awesome Colorado trail guides because we wouldn't have gone as far as we did without them. A gorgeous First Day hike to start 2017! We will be back this summer!

Great loop with a few spectacular views. The historic cabin on the lake is a nice pit stop.

Beautiful trail. We went backwards (clockwise) and I'd recommend doing that so the sun is off you in the second half. We went the extra .5 to Windy Peak and it was definitely worth it. Make sure you pay the 7$ dollars to park or you'll end up paying a 30$ ticket.

Rode this trail in the early spring. Half tge trail was completely clear half the trail had a foot or two of snow. We made it all the way but horses were tired though they seemed to enjoy overall.
