TRAIL DESCRIPTION

This is a beautiful, easy hike in the Gunnison National Forest just outside of Crested Butte, Colorado. The trail makes it’s way over bustling streams (in the early summer) and through old Aspen forests to three different lakes: Lost Lake, Lost Lake Slough, and Dollar Lake. Each hold their own bit of beauty and each have a fantastic view. I imagine this hike would also be great in the fall season due to the amount of Aspens that preside there.
