The access road was closed so that added five miles to the three mile trail to the summit. I believe we were the first one's up to the lake because we passed quite a few people on the way down. The views are amazing and the lake is just stunning. The trail is challenging... if my boyfriend would have said... 更多
We never actually made it to the trail head because the road was closed. We did walk for a bit on the road and enjoyed the views but never made it to the trail head. Not sure how much longer it will be closed.
We hiked this trail in early August on a weekday with our extended family - 50ish adults and 20 somethings. It was challenging for the older ones and no problem for the younger, but SO worth it! Having a stream nearby for most of the trek up ranks this trail high in my book. When we finally reached the waterfall,... 更多
It is a steep hike. Views of the falls and lake were wonderful. A snow storm rolled in and out while we were there. For the shortness of the trail, it has wonderful visual appeal.
We battled altitude sickness for a few days before trying this hike, but we were glad to wait and make it to the first lake. We saw mountain goats and beautiful waterfalls. The hike is tough, but if you bring water snacks and take your time, it's definitely worth the few hours!

Close to 1000 ft in elevation and many steeper areas, nothing crazy though. We were determined to get to the top and... 更多
If there is only one hike you do, this is a really good option. It's less than 4 miles to the Alpine lake and has several areas with incredible views. It's still a fairly difficult hike, but something that can be done if you give yourself some time and a lot of water. The elevation is pretty high, so make... 更多
We hiked this amazing trail in July with younger kids (ages 1 and 3 in carriers), teens, and adults. We picked this hike because it is listed as one of the 4 "Best Family Friendly Hikes in Breck" on the Breckenridge website. We did two of the other hikes and they were extremely easy. The website said it was the... 更多
I gave this hike 3 stars even though some say this is the best hike in the Breckenridge area. This is because I am comparing it to the dozens of other trails I have hiked in the mountains. As all mountain hikes are, this trail provides the visitor with great views and an appreciation for the Colorado Rockies. I am... 更多
