Description

Excellent fishing in a series of mountain basins lakes that are studded throughout this landscape featuring dramatic scenery. The trail traverses from Cherry Creek to Spanish Lakes and is a great jumping off point for numerous other trails in the area.

This trail climbs up and down through a series of watersheds and the hiker or fisher is treated to Cherry Lake, Jerome Rock Lakes, the Brother Lakes, and a handful of others if willing to head just off trail.
