FROZEN LAKE
Distance 13.8 km return, height gain 493 m, moderate
If you're just hiking to West Elk Pass, why not visit Frozen Lake, a truly worthy objective after the ice melts. True to its name, this gorgeous lake remains frozen for about nine months of the year, so plan on visiting from late July on.
Start: At West Elk Pass. Trail #58. Be sure to look at the Elk Lakes trail map.
Difficulty: The trail from the pass is quite clear and unremittingly steep.
Note: Consider scrambling up to Taiga Viewpoint (58B). Another 215 m!
