Details

We will be following the Rest House Trail for the majority of this trip. This trail starts at the parking lot at the beginning of the Mount Evans auto road at elevation 10600 feet. The trail is well travelled and easy to follow. There are a series of ups and downs as we make our way to tree line and travel through the burn area near treeline. The trail to Lincoln Lake, elevation 11600 feet, branches from the Rest House Trail and ascends about 600 feet over one mile to the lake.



The views of Mount Evans and the surrounding massif are spectacular.



Our destination will be the lake, but weather, snow cover and the pace of the group will determine how far we go beyond treeline. We will set a comfortable pace.



Please be sure to bring your ten essentials, several layers for wind, snow shoes and micro spikes. We will likely be on snowshoes for at least part of the hike.
