My wife and I rode bikes clockwise around this loop. It was great. Rented bikes in town for a reasonable price and left from right there. Clockwise is the easier direction to go, there's more downhill. Going the other way would be a little more of a workout. Awesome views at every corner, and lots of old mines to ride by. Definitely a worthwhile activity if in Leadville. Paved the whole way, every town should have bike paths like this!! But not many will have this kind of view.

on Judd Falls Trail

Very short, yet nice and easy trail. The falls were less than we expected, but overall worth walking. We continued to Copper lake trail from the falls.

The perfect combo of hard work in the beginning with the beautiful views on the way down.

Walking on a road the entire way. Views are nice but little shade on warm days.

Prepare for a solid 2 miles of steep uphill hiking! We took quite a few short breaks throughout this part of the hike to make it more bearable. You hike through some gorgeous Aspens, which helps you forget that you're climbing straight uphill. After the Aspens, you come out into a meadow with beautiful wild flowers and a spectacular view of the mountains. Great place to reenergize yourself for the rest of the hike. The last few miles are still pretty difficult in that it's mostly uphill, though it's not as steep in most parts and there's more even hiking along the way to give your legs a bit of a break. Again lots a beautiful scenery though this. We reached the lake in about 2hrs45mins. Once we got there, we ate lunch and rested about an hour before beginning the journey back down. We really enjoyed the hike and would highly recommend it!

Historic trail, but no motor vehicles allowed or skateboard. It's mostly a bike trail

Good trail, definitely more for bikes than hikes. Paved the entire way, lots of interesting signs describing the history of Leadville. Rated moderate mostly for the 10,000 ft elevation the trail sits at. Incline is very gradual.

coolest, biggest, oldest stand of Aspen that i,'ve ever had the privelege of experiencing
