Spring is a great time of year to hike the Goose Creek Loop. Here are a few photos from previous springs to inspire you to get out and do it.

Wildflowers proliferate near the beginning of the loop at the edge of the Hayman Fire.

Thanks for sharing, Dondo. The Goose Creek Trail really is worth the time of a slower pace and some extended exploring. The wildflowers at the TH aren't out yet, but should be gorgeous in a few weeks!

Dondo, thanks for posting the sweet pics. They make me want to shoulder my pack and walk into the scene.

Lost Creek is mostly snow free on 05/18/2009 19:35:53 MDT Print View

Just an FYI for anyone in Colorado. I was in Lost Creek this weekend and the snow is mostly gone. We did a 31 mile loop from Ute Creek up past McCurdy Mountain and than up Goose Creek to Wigwam and back down through Lost Park. Very nice views and even above timberline there was very little snow. I did go in them but the Kenosha Mountains looked doable as well. I might post some pictures later but I hightly recommend McCurdy Mountain and McCurdy Park if you want a nice hike.
