Details

This hike follows Dry Creek, ascending steeply into a gorgeous high basin encircled by Little Horn Peak, Fluted Peak and Horn Peak. We will hike past Dry Lake Number One to the second and largest lake, at 11,865 ft, for a lunch stop, enjoying the beauty before hiking back down to the trailhead. The leader will probably spend the night in Westcliffe the night before if people are interested in getting together.
