Details

We will start at the Craigs Campground pulloff and hike uphill along the road to the cabin at the Lake Agnes "Summer Trailhead". From here we will go up the summer trail if we do not have to break trail. If no other groups have gone up the trail we will go a bit further west and follow a drainage up, breaking trail up to the lake (there is one steep section a bit below the lake).



Note that you will need to have snowshoes and hiking poles with snow baskets. The wind can be very cold on the lake so you will also need face protection (mask, buff, or scarf) and something to cover your eyes (I use goggles). I also recommend gaiters to keep snow out of your boots. 



This is a Colorado State Park, I have a state park sticker, but other drivers will also need to have one or all riders will need to contribute to the purchase of a day pass.
