Abyss Lake Trail


Headstand

This trail starts fairly high up the south side of Guanella Pass, intersects the Rosa Lee trail, and continues to Abyss Lake. From there one could climb Mount Evans and Mount Bierstadt without the throngs that crowd the other routes to those summits. We had a leisurely breakfast at the Cutthroat Cafe in Bailey, and didn’t make it up to Abyss Lake, but it makes for a great day hike too. The grade is gentle the trail folows Scott Gomer Creek up through the woods, eventually providing views of high peaks to the southwest that I thought might be the Collegiate Peaks.
