Owner description: Remote, scenic area near the northern Colorado border popular for fishing, hiking and whitewater rafting.
Reviewed September 16, 2011

Just got back from the Zirkel wilderness area where we hiked up to the mining camp and overnited. Next day, got up and climbed Zirkel- weather looked cloudy but cleared up as we got to Red Dirt Pass. Beautiful views and the trails are relatively empty.

There are a number of stream crossings going up there- so bring your water shoes. I recommend this area for those that will be in Steamboat. I personally like the views better in the San Juans, but this is very nice.

We have done a half dozen or more hikes in the Zirkels. The "Zirkel Circle" to Gilpen lake being one of the best. Buy "Hiking The Boat" for directions and options.
