Spot Comments:


  • This trail takes you to Upper Sand Creek Lake which sits just below timberline. There is a hard to find primitive route to the north over high Milwaukee Pass. The views from the pass are spectacular but be warned, this is very high, rugged, and steep terrain. This high basin is bighorn sheep country.
