Great hike with a beautiful ending. One of my favorites. Mt Holy Cross overlooks the lake. Did this hike May 24th and there were still several stretches of knee deep snow, but you can mostly work around them with no trouble. Also, trees are down near the lake so it took a little creativity to get to the actual lake. We didn’t need microspikes or poles.
