Living only 45 min outside of Rocky Mountain National Park has so many benefits. I had never been to Bierstadt Lake before and it sure didn’t disappoint. There wasn’t much color in the sky this morning, but none the less, you can’t beat escaping to the mountains and watching that beautiful sunlight hit the mountain peaks! I highly recommend this trail. It’s only a 3.2 mile roundtrip from the Bierstadt Lake Loop Trail junction and reveals an incredible landscape to behold.
