Great for kids. The lake and Platte River make the area even more spectacular!

Remains of the Hayman Fire can be seen on these trails.

FUN FACT: June 8, 2002 - Forest Service worker Terry Lynn Barton admitted to accidentally starting the blaze when, in a moment of emotional distress, she lit a letter from her estranged husband in a remote campfire ring near Lake George.

I used this trail to connect to Strawberry Jack, Skipper and Buck Gulch. The first part of the trail is hikers only. The day I hiked I encountered a few bikers. The weather was cool and the mountains were snow covered and beautiful against the deep blue sky. Buck Gulch was very steep with lots of loose rocks.
I intend to explore more of the Pine Valley area.

Borders remnants of the Hayman Fire, so you get some perspective of the destruction a fire can cause and how long it's going to take for the forest to regenerate itself. Nice lake to walk around - add the loop to your more rigorous hike as a cooldown. Also, the South Platter River is part of the park, so you can start your hike walking along the Platte and finish it off walking around the lake.
