Gilpin Lake Loop Trail
The Mount Zirkel Wilderness Area extends long and narrow into the northern reaches of the state, and boasts rugged, rocky peaks of the Continental Divide and large forests of pine and aspen. This hike wanders about in these forests and visits a high, lonely lake along the way. The path affords terrific views of Mount Zirkel, the highest point in the area, and takes hikers over the top of a pass for a long and excellent day hike.
