    You HAVE to have a high clearance vehicle to get anywhere near the trailhead. We had to park 2 miles from the trailhead at the horse ride parking lot, after reversing our car a good 500 feet down a narrow ledge after seeing that only a high clearance vehicle would manage with their oil pan intact. Once on the trail it is quite easy to wander off one of the side trails that horses and wildlife use. I recommend sticking to the AllTrails map for the best route for humans. No need to bushwhack if you use the correct trail. It is rocky and I had a pole with me that helped on the descent tremendously. Great views at the top, but that extra 4 miles (there and back) if you can’t make it past the horse rides parking lot will make this a half-day hike versus a few hours if you park at the actual trailhead.

    Awesome trail that gets maybe a half dozen groups hiking it per day MAX versus multiple dozens of groups on blue lakes trail per day. The parking lot was jam packed when we arrived, but we found a parking spot. The first 2 miles are downright easy, a kid could do it. The last mile is a little more strenuous and I do recommend a pole or two for the descent unless you enjoy a good rock dance. We got to the basin and only saw one other group of people with a couple dogs. The panoramic views are astounding. All trails map ends at the basin, but the trail does go further up and has more switchbacks that take you much further above the basin. Took us 4 hours and 10 minutes from the parking lot and we took a 40 minute lunch up top and a few short breaks on the way up. Awesome hike and definitely recommended if you want to get away from the plethora of people. Sure it doesn’t have a lake, but it has waterfalls, awesome views of Sneffels and a river beside you half the hike; plus no people saying “behind you” or “passing” every ten minutes. Once you get to the basin, take a left and follow the waterfalls up a hidden trail just past the little campground. I would venture as far as to say this is basically a hidden gem of a hiking trail in these parts.
