Red Deer Lake (access via Camp Dick) is impossible via Boulder Canyon, Peak to Peak Hwy. I've changed this outing to Herman Gulch Lake off of IH-70 near Bakerville, CO.
This is a joint event (SM-DN). Herman Lake is located north of Bakerville, CO in the Clear Creek Ranger District of the Arapaho National Forest. It lies in the open tundra of a capacious valley just below the Continental Divide. The Herman Gulch Trail, which is part of the greater Continental Divide Trail, follows Herman Gulch through luxuriant meadows to treeline, where it branches off on a well-defined path to Herman Lake. Visitors will enjoy good trail conditions, open alpine landscapes and a chance to see bighorn sheep and mountain goat in their natural habitat. Refreshment stop after outing.
