“A beautiful loop that is relatively easy to access from the Steamboat area but can attract crowds on holidays/weekends.”— Zander Göpfert
Once in the Mount Zirkel Wilderness, there are a number of camping options along the loop as long as you observe Wilderness regulations. The Mica Basin Trail #1162 is an obvious spur up along a creek drainage that descends from Mica Lake at the base of the Agnes peaks with numerous dispersed camping spots.
Bring a fly rod to test your mettle at the lakes along the way.
