From Hessie Trailhead in Eldora we will hike to Woodland Lake using the Devil's Thumb Bypass. We will continue to Skyscraper Reservoir. Then we will go off trail, climbing Woodland Mountain (this may involve some moderate scrambling but no exposure) and descend to Betty Lake.  We will then return via the King Lake Trail.


Don’t forget to bring your Ten Essentials.


There will be a celebratory stop after the hike for those you want to; it is completely optional.
