Details

Hike begins at Echo Lake (10,600) with a 400' descent into Chicago Creek drainage. View a waterfall cascade between these two high lakes, which are situated in a basin surrounded by high cliffs, just north of Mt. Evans. Weather permitting we will break for lunch and scenery at the awesome upper lake (11,740) which is above treeline. One of the most scenic hikes east of the divide.


 Dinner after the hike in Idaho Spring!
