Details

Escape the Summer heat and enjoy two Colorado lakes.

Enjoy a view of a waterfall cascade between two high lakes, situated in a basin surrounded by high cliffs. The hike begins at Echo Lake with a 400' descent into Chicago Creek drainage. The first lake is tucked away in the back of a steep glacial valley, the second rests 400 yards further south above a 300' wall of broken cliffs and grassy slopes.

 

Please bring your 10 essentials. 

Please let me know if you have any medical conditions I should be aware of.

 




Notes

Fantastic day with great weather.
3 in the group decided to take the trail across the lake and hike up to the Ridge/Summit Lake.
