Details

The snow shoe trek begins at Bear Lake and follows the trail going up to Flattop Mtn or Odessa Lake. At the junction, we will take the Odessa Lake trail traveling northwest for 1.8 mi.,  eventually heading southwest first to Two Rivers Lake and then continuing on to Lake Helene.  After enjoying a light snack/lunch break at Lake Helene, and weather permitting/group interest, we can continue on a short distance to the overlook of Grace Falls. The ice from the falls is blue in color and very impressive to see frozen.  This route seems harder in the winter because of the snow; but the views never disappoint. 




Notes

Ride share from Fort Collins is $13
