Description

Zodiac Ridge is the aggressively-toothy ridgeline north of Red Peak which looms above Upper Willow Lake. The peaks are named after zodiacal constellations. See if you can figure out which is which. Willow Lake is the best place to see it (not to mention being a fun trail to get there).

Half-Day Run: The Willow Lake Trail is the way to get here. Access is via Mesa Cortina or other Gore Range Trail access points.
