Estes Park, CO
“Wow” comes to mind as a fitting description for this popular hike! The trail winds up through lodgepole forest, then climbs through limber pines and krummholz to the alpine tundra. On clear days you can see for miles across the eastern plains. Longs Peak, Mount Meeker, and Mount Lady Washington loom to the southwest. Along the shelf trail, Peacock Pool, Columbine Falls, and colorful wildflowers captivate your eyes. Chasm Lake, snuggled beneath the shear East Face of Longs Peak, can’t be beat for scenic beauty.
