Chicago Lakes Trail and Mount Evans 702-1

Chicago Lakes Trail

The Chicago Lakes Trail starts about 14 miles from Idaho Springs. The trail takes you down to a road, along the road for about a mile, then back up into a basin beneath Mt. Evans. The trail is about 9 miles round trip and offers amazing views of the Chicago Lakes as well as the 14er seen here. (Mount Evans) at 14,265’. Photo © copyright by Rob Greebon.
