Description

Thomas Lakes Trail heads west off of Hay Park Trail at the southern end of a meadow around 1.75 miles from the start toward the Mount Sopris Trail.

After the trail split, Thomas Lakes Trail climbs through Aspen trees and open meadows for ~2mi. In this span, the trail crosses Prince Creek twice before finally reaching Thomas Lakes.
