A scenic trail through flower-filled meadows and many lakes with abundant views of the Snowy Range.

Description

The trail starts at the Mirror Lake picnic area. The trail gently ascends through flowering meadows and other small lakes until it passes Lookout Lake. The view of the Snowy Range across Lookout Lake is beautiful, and this is a great place to stop and snap a picture. After passing the lake, the trail ascends a couple switchbacks to another set of ponds before intersecting the Medicine Bow Peak Trail #295.

Flora & Fauna

The wildflowers are amazing in late June and July, especially along the Lakes Trail.
