We did the three lakes trail with our 6 yr old son and two pups. Everyone was good and tired after spending a good half day exploring these beautiful alpine lakes. Would highly recommend this trail, especially in late July when the wildflowers are on fire!!

Gorgeous and pretty mellow

One of my favorite hikes in the state. Quiet, out of the way, and beautiful. Anthracite Creek is amazingly clear (and can rage in the spring after a heavy winter). Small trout can be caught in the creek.

This hike is tough! The views are awesome but 2+ miles of rock field is exhausting. Also the trail is non-existent even outside of the rock fields. I would recommend just going around lost lake and then up a bit part way through the fields - the whole way is not quite worth it, in my opinion!

Lots of snow still up high, and lots of talus/scree hopping. Some of this gets loose, steep and sketchy on the route I chose. Up high, I followed a previous hikers AllTrails gps map, but had to deviate due to snow. My route only got to the ridge that you would scramble up to get to the summit. It was getting late in the day, I was alone, and a little scared of the loose talus ridge climb, so I bailed, to return another day!

Absolutely beautiful lake and mountain views right off Kebler pass. I prefer the disbursed camping sights on the way up to the lake or all along Kebler Pass. Some of the best camping in Colorado in my opinion. I would not personally camp in the lake campground simply because it is a little to crowded for me, but if you have a family, and like having restrooms and a nice picnic table and fire pit, this would be a great choice.

We entered the Canyon from the West and encountered 18" of snow November 22, 2013. Difficult travelling, many mountain lion tracks, very cold. We were on our NOLS independent travel for Outdoor Education. No Shoe shoes. Trudging with 60 lbs on our backs.

Very beautiful. We went over memorial day weekend so it was a little crowded. But we loved it. Had some great swimming holes and beautiful rock formations.
