    Joe Wagner reviewed Upper Cataract Lake Trail

    about 1 year ago

    Yep, it's mostly uphill but hey, most of Colorado is! I led the boy scouts up this trail and we made a 4 day event of it. The trail passes Surprise Lake - a picturesque lake with flowering, floating Lilies. If you camp at this lake, I recommend as soon as you see the lake, hop over the little hill on the north and drop down the other side. It's more secluded and off the trail. As the trail continues towards Cataract Lake, it levels out for awhile then, one last upward trek to some really great views then quickly drop down to Cat and Cataract Lake. Be prepared for any weather as we had over an inch of hail that lasted for 20 minutes. Afternoon rain was regular but that didn't last long.

    Just completed the loop departing from Missouri Lakes trail head, over Missouri Pass, camped in the tundra near Treasure Lake, then continued over Fancy Pass and returned to the
    Fancy Pass trail head. This is a fantastic pack trip. Many hike it in a single day but I recommend taking a few nights and enjoying the scenery! We encountered a very large mountain goat trying to find his way into our food supply. Fortunately, we were able to suspend our food "bear bag" style from the local cliffs (no trees between the two passes). Be sure to use an official topo map as the Alltrails map does not show the loop correctly. The trail actually goes between the lakes to reach the pass. Can't recommend this trail enough. Myself and another gentleman took four scouts around the loop and it was enjoyed by everyone!

    Great destination hike. Very short and I recommend water shoes. Went for a swim - that was great. Be sure to have a spotter to keep watch for large swells.

    One of my favorites! This is an awesome place to back pack. If you're a fisherman - take live worms! The hike from the parking lot up Missouri Lakes Trail to Missouri Lake is one you won't forget.

    Easy and relaxed hike. Be sure to leave in the AM if you want to camp at one of the designated sites overlooking the lake - they're first come first serve. Like most mountain lakes, it is very calm and beautiful. I agree with Zach, must have been awesome to be an original inhabitant back in the day. I recommend this one as a family hike.
