Details

Description: Hike to a particularly beautiful lake in the Sangre de Cristo wilderness and explore this dramatic area. Possibly day hike over two passes and along the high Phantom Terrace.



Itinerary: 

Day 1. Hike on the North Crestone Creek Trail, #744. Establish camp below treeline, about a mile above the big trail intersection (3.5 miles 1750 ft). Day hike to North Crestone Lake  (4.4  miles/+1600 ft round trip to camp)

Day 2. Fish, relax in camp, or day hike the scenic, west side Comanche Pass/Phantom Terrace/Venable Pass loop (12 miles +/- 4200 ft...don't have to eat the whole thing if we don't want to.)

Day 3. Break camp mid-afternoon and return to trailhead (3.5 miles/-1750ft). Home in the evening.



General Requirements: This trip provides multiple options. (Possibility to camp at North Crestone campground the night before.)
