    fly fishing
    Friday, August 19, 2016

    I've hiked this trail to Upper Sand Creek lake probably close to 30 times in the past 17 years. Its my favorite get-away trail with a nice reward at the lake with good sized trout. Expect the hike to take about 30-40 minutes up to Music Pass with an unbelievable view, then another 30 minutes down to the creek crossing and about another 45 minutes up with switchbacks to Upper Sand Creek Lake. Its totally worth it. Great for pack camping to fully experience the area more, with a number of good campsites.
    Lake elevation is 11,700 ft, so lake doesn't ice-out until late June.
