Amazing, my miniature poodles and I were the only ones on this trail. Granted, driving the 4WD road was a killer to get to the trailhead, but it’s way better than hiking it. You’re immediately in the wilderness, on steep switchbacks up. It’s worth the effort when you reach the ‘pass,’ before the trail descends to the lake. We went up off trail, to get photos of the Gore Range, Holy Cross and all glory!
