Gilpin Lake is one of the many hikes in the great Steamboat Springs area that offers beautiful scenery and serenity. Located near Clark, roughly 30 minutes north of Steamboat Springs, the Gilpin Lake is about 9 miles round trip. Most of this hike travels within the Mount Zirkel Wilderness Area.
With grayish sky, the lake wasn’t so impressive. But we found tons of different berries along the way which made the hike so much more fun and enjoyable. And both of us loved the aspen trees. Those soulful eyes melt my heart.
