It was a strenuous hike in but well worth it! We went the first week of November. The water was the most beautiful color and there were benches around the little lake where you could just sit awhile and take in the beautiful setting with waterfalls. When you're at the lake, be sure to climb just a few steps more to the top of the waterfall. Such a wonderful paradise! I came back in April but the trail was closed. By the way, almost everything is closed in Beaver Creek, Vail and Glenwood Springs from April 16 - May 31, so time your vacation accordingly.

Tough hike UP but you get Great views of a clear lake. Watch the fish, but no fishing!

Best time to visit is in the spring during runoffs. Gorgeous views and easy access once you have climbed the 1 mile very steep and not very easy trail to the location of the lake.

Trail is a bit difficult. Take a least a half liter of water for the round trip hike. Totally worth it!
