Alpine meadows lead to a stunning, remote alpine lake high in the Gore Range.

Description

After running 4.2 miles up the Gore Creek Trail, you'll find this trail branching off to the left up a steep gulch. The first part is quite steep, but pleasantly weaves through fir and aspen forests along streams.

After half a mile, the trail levels out quite a bit, starts passing through meadows, and can be hard to find at times. Make a final turn to the left (west) up a last climb to the lake. If the snow is mostly gone, you can circumnavigate the lake for amazing views of the 10 Mile Range, the Sawatch Range, and of course the Gores all around you.
