Great hike. The wind is bringing down many of the aspen leaves but still some very nice groves about midway to the lake.

The fall colors are showing beautifully with mainly yellows and oranges. The trail was well maintained with a few spots that you had to hop over some tree trunks but nothing strenuous. We did see a momma bear and 2 cubs off in the distance somewhere between this trail and the Lower Cataract Lake trail. Make sure to cautious and careful.

Just wanted to post about some people that do not deserve to camp in the beautiful terrain that mother nature has made. Went and explored to Griffith Lake September 15th. It's a little off the trail so the last couple years it has been pretty much untouched. But whoever has stayed there recently should reevaluate their hobbies. Spent a couple hours cleaning up around the lake, broken bottles everywhere right up on the shoreline which would have easily been swallowed up this winter, bullet casings all over the place, all other sorts of plastic left there and god knows what I didn't see. Have some respect. The mountains are not your trailer park.

Beautiful hike, lots of aspens changing colors, lots of flowering meadows, great views. Around 3 miles in there is a sign that marks #60 Gore trail. You'll want to follow that, as the unmarked trail that goes to the left just goes downhill into the valley, where there are other lakes.

Hiked on 9/18/19, Wednesday. Trail was pretty empty, only saw a couple people and dogs. Active hunting in the area so be careful. Steady incline, mostly single track w brush along the sides. Lots of room to explore at the top around the lakes.

Roundtrip distance to Eaglesmere Lakes is closer to 8.3 miles instead of the 7.4 miles listed on AllTrails. Parking for about 10 cars at the trailhead. This is a fun trail with lots of wildflowers - you will periodically go through a few meadows with hundreds of flowers. While the elevation gain is over 1800 feet, the trail has a steady incline the entire way up, making it feel like less. There are a few short steeper sections, but they don’t last long and the trail generally flattens out right after these sections. The trail is singletrack nearly the entire way and is crowded with plants - you will be rubbing against plants the entire way. I wore pants and my lower legs were pretty soaked by the time I reached the main lake. You will have great views of the Gore Range, lower Cataract Lake, and Cataract Falls. For a stretch of the trail, you will be able to hear the rushing water going over Cataract Falls, even before you see it. The lake was uncrowded on a Friday morning, but even if there are other hikers at the lake, it is big enough to find a secluded section.

June 30, 2019. mosquitos were ferocious. Definitely wear long pants and a long sleeved shirt. Bring bug repellent. We had the trail to ourselves most of the day. Solid 4 round trip to Eaglesmere Lake. Downed trees and some snowpack made the trail harder to follow as you got close to the lake. Trail was muddy as you got closer to the Lake. There are many Aspen trees so we will return in the fall.

Beautiful views and weather. There was a lot of mud, high creek crossings and many downed trees across the trail. But we followed moose tracks the whole way up to Eaglesmere Lake. Then we continued around Gore range trail and met two glorious rangers near Surprise lake who had cleared the trail back down to Cataract parking area. Mosquitoes were bad! Still kid and leashed dog friendly.

Great hike, got to snow about 2.2 made it to 2.6 miles. Snow was 3’ deep about a half mile past that. Not an easy hike, uphill and in the woods 75% of it. Fantastic view of the mountains and waterfalls! We will come back in fall and hike again!

6/1/19 enjoyed gorgeous views. New to area so going out was steep but coming back was easy. well maintained trail, almost no one there on a Saturday midday but more in the afternoon evening. Abnormal late season snow about 2.5 miles in got me to turn around unprepared but there was a trail that people more experienced had walked farther in the snow.

May 25, 2019. Deep snow @ appr 9500’. Route finding difficult where trail leaves forest & crosses openings

9/30/18: Beautiful and challenging for a backpack trek. Aspens are great all the way up to the lake. The trail is steep, but not too painful. The trail is very narrow in sections and one portion is cut into a hill and you feel as though you might slide off. Trees were great this weekend. If you’re going up to camp, please mind the 100’ from the lake expectation, even if you see an established camp. Also, to those with dogs: the first few miles are on a southern slope and it was hot. No water access until the lake.

Amazing hike with spectacular views and fall Aspen colors. We did the whole 11 mile loop including Gore Range and Surprise Lake Trails - took us 6 hours.

Beautiful hike! Lots of diverse scenery....aspen groves, pine forests, open meadows, lovey views across the valley. Aspens were just about perfect this weekend. It was mostly uphill the entire way & the trail could get quite narrow, which made it seem more difficult. Lakes at the top were not the most picturesque I’ve seen but a nice place to have lunch before heading down.

This was an incredible through-aspen-groves hike during the color change. The lakes as a final destination are a bit underwhelming in terms of a view, but we pretty much had the entire trail to ourselves, so the quiet made up for the scenery. Free-roaming cows were a highlight!

Starts off narrow with no view but that changes. I enjoyed the trail. It was a good warm up for our loop. We ate lunch at the lakes. I would recommend it for anyone trying to avoid a crowd.

What a great little hike! Easy to get to from Denver, leave early. Hike has moderate elevation gains and is never too difficult. I would suggest being on the trail no later than 8 am as it starts to get a little busy and the trail is very narrow. One additional note, keep to the right at the Gore Trail/Eaglesmere signpost.

Beautiful views! The trail wasn’t well maintained but it was easy to keep track of where you were going. We got an early start and only saw a couple of people on the trail. Take bug spray. We were eaten alive by mosquitos.

Great in/out hike today. First, half of trail wasn't too bad, some mud and snow. Later half was covered in 3-5 inches of snow. Wish we had some spikes with us but nothing too bad. Didn't see anyone except a few hunters.

Fall colors at their best this week. We camped at Eaglesmere Lakes. Didn't see any mammals at this altitude, including humans. It was beautiful and peaceful. Be prepared for night time temps in the 30s now. No facilities at the parking area or lakes.

We did the 10-12 mile loop from Eaglesmere Trailhead to Tipperary Lake (halfway) to Surprise Trailhead. Easily doable in 1 day, but we made it a relaxing two. Drove up Friday and slept in the car and started at 8:00am. From Eaglesmere to Tipperary it took a little less than 4 hours at a moderate pace with lots of stops. Beautiful day at Tipperary and nice campsites around. From Tipperary to Surprise it only took about 2.5 hours. Very easy downhill. Not a lot of parking at Eaglesmere but plenty at Surprise and Cataract nearby. Look forward to a day hike here in the fall when the aspens change color.

Quiet trail that's easy to follow.

Overall, a good trail, especially because it is pretty quiet and there's not too much activity. Gorgeous Aspen groves and large Evergreens are hard to beat. Only downsides are: It is a bit overgrown, so you can often be scraped by different bushes/plants. Lots of fallen logs to climb over. I'd definitely wear light hiking pants. Also, there are LOTS of bugs on this trail, which is rare for Colorado. Definitely spray down with insect repellant- I got eaten alive by mosquitos!

I took this trail from the west to east coming off a loop. Mostly downhill in this direction. From the trailhead you can expect a uphill climb, but mostly not too steep. Some of the best wildflowers I have seen thus far, and a great view of the waterfall.
