“Earn stunning views of Mt. Neva and Dorothy Lake on this seldom used trail.”— Tom Robson
Following the left fork, the road will skirt the northern edge of a long open meadow through which Meadow Creek flows. Here the trail enters the Indian Peaks Wilderness Area. The trail continues to a junction. The right fork goes to Columbine Lake and Mt. Neva on Columbine Lake Trail. The left fork goes on a narrow footpath to Caribou Pass. Rock cairns mark the trail, even though it is well defined.
From Caribou Pass you can continue on to Arapaho Pass (elevation 11,906) and from there continue down to Monarch Lake, or return to Junco Lake trailhead.
