Browns and Timberline Lakes Trail
The trail starts off as an old jeep road that winds its way through a thinning limber pine forest before rising above timberline. The rest of the hike is across tundra to two lakes hidden deep in a cirque, where snow may linger into July. On this hike, the starting and ending elevations are about the same. This means that you drop down to the lake after climbing several ridges and then have to climb out of the cirque on the return. The views along the way are worth the climb. From high points along the hike old cabin you can see the Mummy Range to the south, the Medicine Bow Range to the west, and the Snowy Range in Wyoming to the north.
