We hiked this trail in 2014. It was a great, fun trail to hike, even for a couple of slightly out of shape novice hikers. It was very doable and so serene. Once at the lake, we'd wished we'd brought our camping gear. So beautiful.

Was a little snowy at parts especially by the lake but overall it was a great hike. Beautiful views of the lake and a pretty easy stroll

really enjoyed our fall hike! gets your heart rate up at first and then levels out in some places. good views and neat bridges. clear wide paths in spots.

Absolutely beautiful area and the lake is crystal clear. At 0.2 miles it definitely isn’t very long but there is a connection to the trail that leads past the other lakes in the area and you end up at Blue Lake.

It was a lovely hike, exactly as advertised. stream crossings were mostly we'll developed with sturdy bridges.

We hiked this on 10.05 and the aspens were gorgeous. This is a great, easy trail. The road to the trailhead was driveable but we heeded some other's reviews and parked at the Windsor trailhead, walked up the road and missed the Hagerman Tunnel sign...it's a wooden sign but for some reason it didn't seem obvious to us and we walked past it another mile. once we found the trail it was an easy hike. We went cw up to the tunnel which was really cool. I didn't go in very far. Since we're parked at the Windsor trailhead we took that trail back to our car which saved 2 miles.

Excellent trail for beginners. Stock SUV will do it easily.

We enjoyed the hike but we're still not sure if we did it all the way... there doesn't seem to be a marker where Shultz ends and the next trail picks up. The views from the big meadow at the top were stunning!

Check it out... Really neat

Excellent afternoon hike with my pup!!

I didn’t hike Turquoise Lake. You pass Turquoise Lake on your left on the way to the Bear Lake TH. I hiked to Bear Lake, an easy 1.1 miles each way. The hardest part is getting up there. Definitely need a four-wheel-drive. The dirt road is deeply rutted. The lake is peaceful and serene. Didn’t run into a soul. Large boulders everywhere. You can hike around the whole lake but the path is not as worn as the hike up to the lake. If I liked to meditate, I’d meditate here!

Beautiful hike, especially in the fall! Beginning of October leaves just barely changing

Good views, cool ghost town ruins and multiple high alpine lakes.

Summited 8/5 with beautiful weather! Weather report said wind would be upwards of 60 mph the night before, but morning of, the weather report changed to normal winds. Left at 6:45am and summited in 4 hours. Tough finish to the summit with what seems like endless switchbacks, but the views were worth it! Would recommend starting from the southeast trailhead to save you ~4 miles. Total trip clocked in at 18 miles. There are still beautiful fall aspens, but probably not for long!

This map needs redone. It is not even close to accurate. It's a nice hike if you ignore this map.

Absolutely amazing trail! It's closer to 8.1-8.2 miles and more loss of elevation than expected. You go up and down about 4-6 points on the saddle from Carbonate to PT 13,940 to Tabeguache. Amazing views through the valley, loose scree to the saddle, a little route finding on the ridgeline, and more effort than I expected. ONLY DOG FRIENDLY if your dog is very experienced and has 15+ 14ers under their belt recommended. Very very easy to run into class 3. The granite rock the entire way is not kind to paws, but luckily his were seasoned so minimal damage. Bring layers, water, food, and plan accordingly. GPS helped, make sure you don't take the old SW ridge route back down after PT 13940 aim for the 13er saddle, hard to route find in the dark.

beautiful hike and crisp fall morning

This is one of my favorites. Narrow Trail, not too rocky (to the saddle), not too steep. Well marked. I'll try for the Summit one of these days!
