This was a tough hike for me. The trail starts at around 10000+ foot elevation and keeps going UP! Sometimes the trail was hard to decipher but worth the hike. We took a different trail back that was wet, but super fun. We picnicked by...More

This would have been a great hike back to alpine lakes but there was still 3ft+ fo snow. We were well equipped but it’s just no fun scaling wet, crunchy unpredictable snow drifts. Will definetly go back in 30-60 days

This hike offers a little bit of everything. Mining ruins, waterfalsl, summit lakes, moderately challenging terrain, and absolutely stunning mountain views!!!! We take all of our guests on this trek!

This is one gorgeous hike! The trail to Mohawk Lakes isn't long, but it is steep and at high altitude, so some may find it strenuous. The lakes are positively gorgeous, sitting in a grand high alpine ampitheater. A must do for outdoor nuts visiting...More

This is probably one of the best hikes in Breck. There are lakes, a waterfall, mining remains including an old lift. The hike can be made shorter or longer to fit your needs. We have done it with our 9-year old son.

We hiked this trail in order to get to the last glacial lake to do some cutthroat fishing. As you would expect, you need to be in decent shape to handle the altitude. The views were incredible and we even saw a group of 6...More

It's a nice hike but many people people on the trail. Also, it's very close to Breckenridge. This is quite nice because you dont have to spend hours driving. If you go with dogs during summer it can be quite hot for them. Please be...More

In total, the total length of the trail is almost 7 miles (round trip) from the first parking area. Even with a four-wheel drive rental, the drive is still very difficult. Myself and a friend took the hiket last year. This... More

Elevation is the main issue. I found Trek poles to be very useful going in some of the rocky areas.
