I have hiked 200 hundred miles of trails in Mt Zirkel and I am not even close to seeing everything there is to see. The vistas are spectacular as are all the alpine lakes. Camping and backpacking heaven.

A great natural landscape for hiking. Gold and Gilpin lakes on the west side of the Zirkels are favorites, so they get busy in the summer. If you want seclusion, enter from Big Creek Lakes north of Walden or take a hike to Lake Katherine East of Walden.

Peaks, waterfalls, not a lot of people, and the Zirkle circle a long hard one day hike. After RMNP (which I love) a treat to get some quiet.

A great place to hike, camp and fish. We also go x-country skiing and snowshoeing in the winter - easy access off of Seed House road. It is particularly beautiful in the Fall when the aspens are turning.

The back country is great place for hiking and horse back riding. But the beetle blight has destroyed much of the beauty of the area.
