Some middle-aged folks here, coming together in Vail Valley this July. Looking for a really nice nearby hike we can all handle. 4-5 miles roundtrip max. Would love for the hike to have a beautiful alpine destination like a lake, falls or vista. Will be some sea-level lowlanders in our crowd, so the longer roundtrip Holy Cross Wilderness hikes I've read about just won't work for us. We don't mind driving up miles of county gravels to get to a trailhead, of course.
