    Kim Grosel reviewed Creedmore Lakes Trail

    (3.18.17) Hiked down the access road (currently closed) to the first lake. Quick and easy hike down. Would be a nice place to camp/back pack.

    (3.18.2017) This is a quick flat hike around the lake. Nice views of the mountains. There were a few snowy/ icy spots. It was popular with people fishing and even some campers, but pretty empty on the far side of the lake. I'd imagine that it would be very busy in the spring and summer.

    Kim Grosel reviewed Forsythe Canyon to Waterfall and Gross Reservoir

    over 1 year ago

    (1.14.2017) I completed this train back in January. Portions of the trail we're icy/snowy, but it was Jan. in Colorado so that's to be expected. Like other reviews, I also found portions of the trail hard to follow, after the waterfall, but over all it was a nice, short hike. Good for winter days when you don't have as much daylight. I would be interested in going back in the summer and camping.

    Kim Grosel reviewed Spruce Mountain Trail

    (3.12.2017) Completed this trail yesterday, the trail was mostly dry with only a few muddy sections, you could probably be comfortable in tennis shoes. The trail is wide and well maintained and the views from the top are well worth the effort to get there. There's a steady climb to the top then it's mostly level. A good day hike that's easy to get to. The trail was pretty busy (on a winter Sunday) and the parking lot was getting full by the time we left at 2:00PM, I can see how it might be crowded in the summer.

    Kim Grosel reviewed Kenosha Pass to Lost Creek Wilderness

    over 1 year ago

    (3.4.17) Only hiked about 6 miles (3 out and back). The trail was snowy and slushy, but not too icy. I was able to hike it in boots alone, but you may want ice cleats. Those first three miles offer some good open views of the valley below.

    Kim Grosel reviewed Brainard Lake Trail

    over 1 year ago

    (11/6/16) We planned to drive to Brainard Lake and then hike to Lake Isabelle, but didn't research to know that the road from the fee station to the lake is now closed for the season, so on to plan B. We parked in the main lot and hiked out Waldrop Trail to the Brainard Lake snowshoe trail and then back along the road. Very little snow and the trail was pretty dry. I know that can change at any time, so if you're interested go now, before the snow rolls in. Windy and cold at the lake, but not bad on the trail/road. So pack some layers. By the route we took it was about 5.75 miles.

    Kim Grosel reviewed Lake Constantine Trail

    over 1 year ago

    (10/29/16) We were lucky that the sun came out during the hike, some clouds and rain at the start. The trail was very easy to follow and only had a few snowy spots. The lake was beautiful, but find a place out of the wind to enjoy it.

    We (husband, dog and I) hiked this trail yesterday, and due to some extra walking around the lake hiked more like 3.5 miles. The hike is short but steep. It was cool at the lake but wasn't too windy. I would do it again!

    I'm going to blame the weather for the three star review. We got rained and fogged out on the hike, didn't make it to the pass. Will try again another day!

    Beautiful hike, we hiked over Fancy Pass to connect to the Missouri Lakes trail. We go a little lost around the lakes but it was well worth the hike.

    We hiked the fancy pass trail to the Missouri Lakes trail to hike a loop. The trail was beautiful! Made the day of it, stopping to fish at fancy lake and one of the Missouri lakes. The wildflowers were everywhere!

    We only made it to tobacco lake. With the threat of a thunderstorm and some rain and hail, we decided to turn around. The views the whole way up were beautiful!

    I hiked this trail on July 9, 2016. The trail was easy to follow and surprisingly dry, with only a few wet or muddy spots. I changed into sandals to cross the stream, rather than walk over the log bridge. Starting at the Lost Creek Campground and stopping at the beaver ponds was 13 miles (round trip). Remember your bug spray!

    I completed the trail, along with my husband and dog on June 19, 2016. Most of the trail was snow free, all but the last mile and a half. Totally worth the slipping and sliding.
