“One of the best hikes in Colorado”
Reviewed September 14, 2012

This is a gorgeous hike. You'll be walking next to a babbling brook for a good portion of the hike. There are even little gorges and waterfalls. At the end of the hike, there are some amazing mountain lakes you won't believe. It's so beautiful. Highly recommend this hike but it is quite strenuous so don't attempt it unless you are up for a bit of a challenge. Start early, from around 6 am to around 8 or 9 am so you can finish before the thunderstorms roll in. 9 am is probably getting a bit late, but you might get lucky and be okay.

A ten-mile loop through the Holy Cross Wilderness Area is heavenly.
