Chasm Lake (11,800'), RMNP
by jimlarkey on Oct 23, 2009
Meeker Park, Colorado, United States
8.7 miles
Chasm Lake is tucked in below Longs Peak (14,255')  "Diamond" Face.  It offers some outstanding views of Longs summit, the "Loft", "Lambs Slide", the "Ships Prow", and surrounding minor peaks like Estes Cone, Twin Sisters, Mt Lady Washington.  The trail to Chasm Lake is well worth the 2400' climb. We had great weather for the climb.  We met a couple on Mills Moraine that were descending from overnighting at Chasm Meadow.  They were wearing crampons,...

Fall River Estates Subdivision, Colorado, United States
6.6 miles
I still remember my first trip to Bear Lake ... 42 years ago.  It made a big impression on a kid from Kansas.  I was really happy to make a return visit!When planning this trip, I didn't know how much time we would have, and how we would react to hiking at this elevation.  So my Plan A objective was to make it up to Dream and Emerald Lakes. I am sure...

This loop worked out nicely since the shuttle bus started running this weekend. After circling the lake, I went to Bear Lake and circled it as well, then made a trip up to Alberta Falls before coming back to catch the shuttle bus at Glacier Gorge.

St. Vrain Mountain (12,162'), Indian Peaks Wilderness
by jimlarkey on Jun 29, 2010
Allenspark, Colorado, United States
9.3 miles
What St Vrain Mountain (12,162') fails to offer the hiker in technical climbing, more than rewards you in views of the Continental Divide, Longs Peak, Wild Basin, The Indian Peaks, and the plains.  St Vrain is an oft overlooked experience by tourist.The St Vrain trail is situated in the Indian Peaks Wilderness, and the summit is on the RMNP boundary line.  The summer trailhead (TH) is located about 1-1/2 miles south of Allenspark,...

Lumpy Ridge Trail to Gem Lake & Balanced Rock
by jimlarkey on Nov 22, 2008
Stanley Heights Subdivision, Colorado, United States
8.8 miles
"The shallow waters of Gem Lake are cradled high among the rounded granite domes of Lumpy Ridge. Untouched by glaciation, this outcrop of 1.8 billion-year-old granite has been sculpted by wind and chemical erosion into a backbone-like ridge. Signs of these erosional forces--pillars, potholes, and balanced rocks--appear midway along the trail to Gem Lake. Other highpoints include spectacular views of the Estes Valley and Continental Divide, and a curious balanced rock called...
