Pretty basic hike for anyone with medium to excelled hiking fitness. Still enjoyed it though.

Best hike I've ever done. Definitely doable and the views are incredible.

Did this with Missouri pass and I thought the trail and the scenery on Missouri were better.

Awesome hike, we hiked from Holy Cross city to Fancy Pass and then to Missouri Pass, backpacked near Missouri Lakes. The passes we're still pretty snowy and pretty challenging at times. Having hiking poles and microspikes made this a lot more doable. Coming down Missouri pass we lost the trail under the snow and wound up going off trail at times to find a way down. The only additional thing I wish I'd brought is something to slide down on.

Done before and it's a fun trail, but currently the first creek crossing is above the top of my 29in front tires. Might need a week or 2 to calm down.

Lots of snow! We only made it 1 mile in. I'm sure it will be a great hike later on the season.

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!

Awesome trail to the lake. My friend and i decided to continue on and turn it into a 14er hike on the Missouri mountain and saw even greater views of the lakes

The long drive to the trailhead is worth it when you get to the top, beautiful views!! We went backpacking in the summer and ended up going back to hiking in the fall so we could see the leafs changing colors and it was so worth it! Love this hike!

Perfect weekend of backpacking. We started with fancy pass to Treasure Cove Lake then headed to Harvey Lake about 4 miles down the trail. Headed back towards Treasure Cove the next day and went over Missouri Pass and to the lakes. Absolutely gorgeous the entire way.

This 2012 Buick LaSabre killed the trail!

We hiked the fancy pass trail to the Missouri Lakes trail to hike a loop. The trail was beautiful! Made the day of it, stopping to fish at fancy lake and one of the Missouri lakes. The wildflowers were everywhere!

Lots of climbing with great views after a mile or so. Long drive to reach trail head but worth it.

We hiked in over Fancy Pass and camped in the valley on the other side near Treasure Vault Lake. Gorgeous place to camp. Hiked out the next day over to the Missouri Lakes to finish off the loop. Pretty well traveled area because of the relatively short distance, but a very nice overnighter.

Great hike with lots of beautiful features. We hiked over from the Missouri Lakes side after camping there the previous night. Great trail that I would certainly recommend to anyone looking for an alpine experience.

I have only hopped on this trail from the road on vail pass but it's super fun and has great views up on top bring a camera and a lunch !!

I like hiking in Holy Cross Wilderness. The mountains are beautiful.

Very beautiful hike. Watch for bears especially if your backpacking in to continue on to holy cross. Go in the fall when the leaves change.

beautiful hike - we did the Fancy Pass / Missouri Lakes loop. I strongly recommend doing it from the Fancy Pass side first, as the skree fields would make the descent more difficult than the ascent.

It was a gorgeous trip... we were stopped premature of the Pass as we met a water hazard which was uncrossable about an hour from the top. It was a stunning hike, no other hikers on trail...
