I went on this hike in mid-morning with my wife and 2 daughters (10 & 8). This ended up being one of our favorite hikes we did on our trip to Colorado due to the beautiful scenery all of the way up to the lake....More
The hike from the parking lot is actually 4.5 miles to the lake. It is a steady uphill climb the whole time – if you’re not acclimated to the altitude/elevation this will be an extremely difficult hike. We carried 10 bottles of water for three...More

Herman Gulch Trail lies between Georgetown and the Loveland Ski Area at I-70 Exit 218. There is a large parking lot that easily holds 50 cars. Besides Colorado license plates, I have spotted those of many out-of-state tourists.
This trail starts out at 10,400 feet...More
