I was hesitant to write this review because I selfishly want to keep it off the radar. It's not easy to get to the trail head which is probably why it isn't very crowded. There is a small campsite at the lake that many hikers take advantage of if they don't want to make a day hike out of it.... More

This trail departs from nearly 12'000 feet on the Continental Divide and goes pretty much downhill to the Lake then, of course, the climb back. Gorgeous alpine scenery and the setting for the lake itself is striking. It's a haul, though. Take a lunch and water and spend a few hours on this great hike
