This day was certainly a gorgeous day for a hike in the high country, especially with temps in the city reaching the mid 90s. A short drive west on I-70 to exit 218 and an immediate right onto a dirt road is parking for the Herman Gulch Trailhead. This is a very popular trail to say the least. Mostly because it’s really easy to get to from Denver or anywhere in the metro area, and because of the numerous wildflowers that can be found along the way.
The hike up to Herman Lake I would say is moderate to strenuous, but well worth it. There were people of all shapes and sizes take this trail. It’s always great to see a variety of people out enjoying nature and maybe even stepping outside of their comfort zones. I will later post more pics from this hike, bare with me as I’m playing catch up. Enjoy!
