Description

This trail is a short, straightforward loop around Sprague Lake. It is made interesting and worthwhile by its awe-inspiring views of Longs Peak to the south, Estes Cone to the southeast, Bierstadt Moraine to the west, and the lake itself.

Access this loop via one of the connector trails that leads out of the Glacier Basin Campground.
