Mount Zirkel Wilderness Lakes

Mount Zirkel Wilderness

Ahh, Wilderness! – Mount Zirkel Wilderness Lakes are plentiful and beautiful. Many of these lakes are deep within the wilderness and unless you are an ultra marathoner, better seen on a backpacking trip.

Flat Tops Wilderness

Early Season Hike in the Flat Tops – I went up to the Flat Tops Wilderness last Sunday for an early season hike. The road up to Stillwater Reservoir is open all the way. You’ll need to be prepared for wet, soggy, and snow packed trails. Wear waterproof boots or at least footwear you are […]
