Mills Lake is a sensational subalpine lake. With Half Mountain sitting majestically at the end of the lake and views of peaks on all sides as high as 13,579 feet it is one not to miss. Large rocky areas to sit in wonder and enjoy a picnic or a nap. Truly a great day hike in Rocky Mountain National Park. #colorado #RMNP #hikes
Loch Vale, also known as The Loch is one of the most popular hikes within Rocky Mountain National Park. The subalpine lake sits nestled below 13,153-foot Taylor Peak and Taylor Glacier. 30 ft Alberta Falls is an added treat while hiking up to the Loch. #colorado #rockymountainnationalpark #RMNP

Mountian Boy Ridge Trail at the Summit of Independence Pass is a must-do if prepared. Absolutely stunning as you hike past the Summit along Mountain Boy Ridge along the Continental Divide and see views like no other. Bring your boots, hiking essentials, and wander far beyond the lookout. You won't be disappointed! #coloradotrails #hiking #Indenpendencepass
Elk Falls is the ideal destination hike in Staunton State Park especially if you like adventurous trails deep into rocks, views, and canyons. It is like being in the high mountains yet you are not far from Denver.
Summit County includes the mountain towns of Silverthorne, Dillon, Keystone, Frisco, and Breckenridge. It's a summer and winter paradise. We call it our playground! With endless outdoor trails and activities, you could be here for weeks. #Colorado #hiking
