We started ascending to timberline lakes, but we didn't have the proper shoes for all the snow, so we turned around and continued through the Colorado trail on the north entrance ( by the continental divide trailhead entrance). Plenty of incline walking, with great views of the mountain river runoff and we were even able to see a few deer. We had to turn around due to rain, but it's definitely a new favorite!
