Best half-day hike in RMNP on 07/25/2013 11:07:30 MDT Print View

Hey everyone, my wife and I will be in Colorado in a few weeks and I want to bag a hike in RMNP. We've been before in the Winter, snowshoeing from Bear Lake for a bit.

My question is...if I have a half day and can knock out a 5-10 mile hike, what is a must-do location, the one trail everyone should see? I've read a bit online but I get a lot of answers. I know we can't see everything, but I'm looking for that one amazing lake or view.

Thanks!

Don't know if is the best, but this one is pretty cool for the mileage you want and the elevation gain is not too bad.

By RMNP standards, it is relatively quite, too, vs other areas (relatively!!!)

The views are quite stellar, too.
