Gorge Lakes


1. Some people start this hike from Rock Cut on Trail Ridge Road.  Rock Cut is shown in this photo at upper right.  But taking this route requires that you cross Forest Canyon.  Instead, I decided to continue on to Milner Pass and take the Continental Divide route.  The Continental Divide route is much more exposed, so you need to pick a day when lightning risk is low.  This route should provide much better views.
