Clark Peak Summit Trail
Clark feels very different than most other peaks in Colorado—in a very good way. Those who have hiked in Wyoming’s Wind River Range may find the atmosphere in the Medicine Bows familiar. This route goes by Jewel Lake, a dreamy alpine pool at the base of a dramatic basin. The stiff, off-trail hill that goes from Jewel Lake is flooded with flowers of all colors. From Clark’s summit (which will be hidden until you actually ascend to the top), the southern skywalk to neighboring unnamed peaks is a transcendent traverse. Many who hike in this area return to backpack and camp (the terrain is similar to the Mount Zirkel Wilderness in Steamboat Springs).
