Are you ready for an adventure? Lets hike up above the town of Leadville, Colorado to a secluded high alpine lake! The trail starts at an elevation of over 2 miles above sea level (10,800ft), and reaches up to almost 12,000ft at the top! The total trip is a little over 7 miles, and definitely takes up an entire day. If we are moving at a good pace, we can probably complete the hike in 4 hours. On the hike up we’ll pass some fresh snowmelt streams, an abundance of wildflowers, and of course the lake at the top. This is the definition of an adventure here in Colorado, don’t miss out!
