One of the top high-country wildflower hikes on the Front Range, Diamond Lake Trail has in excess of 100 different kinds of wildflowers coloring sweeping slopes and intimate glens, as well as plenty of crystalline waterfalls along the way. Initially, the trail follows the same path as that of Arapaho Pass and Fourth of July Mine. After 1 mile of steady climbing, Diamond Lake Trail branches off left and drops a few hundred feet before rising again to the lake. Both coming and going, hikers accumulate altitude losses and gains. Located on the south end of the Indian Peaks Wilderness Area at the Fourth of July Trailhead, Diamond Lake Trail is extremely popular. Wildflower alert: A “century” trail with more than 100 species of wildflowers at peak bloom.
