Hiked this trail on Oct 25th and was sad to see the gate to the campground was closed. It added an extra mile to the hike, but it was still worth it. The lakes are on their way to being frozen but not quite there yet. Gap Lake was still okay.
There is snow on the ground but hard packed and easy to walk on. Dress warm, the winds pick up quickly and make for a cold walk if you’re not prepared.

Gorgeous through and through. Numerous crystal clear small mountain lakes dot the path up. Awesome 360 view of both North and South Gap Lakes from vantage point in the middle. CAUTION mosquitos were nearly unbearable once hiking along the South Lake. Bring more bug spray than you need.

Chose this trail as a more relaxing hike the day after Medicine Bow Trail, and it did not disappoint.This out and back trail takes you to a handful of lakes and provides awe inspiring views along the way, without too much hard work . The elevation, distance, and difficulty makes this great for the whole family or anyone looking for a quick and easy trail. Bring a light jacket as the wind can get intense (August).
