The South Fork Clear Creek TH to the Lake Ann trail is one of the most beautiful hikes in the Collegiate Peaks Wilderness. The terrain is varied, the views of the Three Apostles are spectacular, and there are many gorgeous spots to take a breather and have a snack, including the small falls you have to cross, and the large granite rocks overlooking the creek after the falls. If you take the detour to Lake Ann, rather than hike over the Continental Divide, the hike is more moderate-to-hard than hard. Well worth the effort. The Banker Mine is a fun detour on the way in.

End of June and still lots of snow and downed trees which caused us to lose the trail for a bit. The lake was iced over but still beautiful. There was a crew working on the trail and making nice improvements.

Lake Ann Trail is a scenic trail to a lake above timberline with great views of Mt. Huron and the Three Apostles. Best time to go is July-August. You can also hike past Lake Ann and go to a saddle above the Lake and see the Taylor Valley on the other side.
