    Mountain Majesty

    by zulu9 Written Jan 6, 2005
    On Peak-to-Peak Highway

    There is a hike that starts at Bear Lake and you have several choices from there. All are good. Lake Heyaha (sp?) is nice goal for the person in moderately good physical condition. The Loch and beyond are awesome. You have to scramble to get up to Cloud Lake. I couldn't do it because it looked scarier than it really was. Great views all around!

    Equipment: Hiking boots, water, layers, rain gear. All the usual things for rugged terrain and changing weather conditions.

    Equipment: Proper equipment is required. There are several outfitters in Boulder who rent equipment or provide guide services.
