Shelf Lake Trail

A beautiful hike, even without the wildflowers! Most of the aspen had lost their leaves, but it was obvious this would be a great hike when the aspen have turned. No one else was on the trail, and the drive to the trailhead is lovely. A lovely hike in a beautiful area!

I rode this trail on my horse and it was quite difficult to pick through the rocks and steep, going up on a horse isn't as bad as going down...I got quite scared in some places concerned that my horse would trip , slip and fall in some places. I got off and hiked down the steeper places as my mare was very tired and not use to the altitude. Well worth the ride to the lake....I just wanted to stay and come down the next day and enjoy the beauty. Saw a few campers and hikers but not very many.

Such an awesome hike! It's beautiful all the way to the top!
My husband, our 2 dogs, and I camped at the small lake right below Abyss Lake. There was a wicked thunderstorm that rolled in at about 3:00pm, and being above timberline was a bit nerve-racking, but made for a cool story.
I would totally recommend backpacking in. The solidarity of it was beautiful. We were the only campers, and only saw two groups the whole trip.

The old Hooper trail no longer exists. It is part of the Colorado Trail.

A friend a I completed this trail and loved it! The trail going up to the lake was fairly easy to follow. The beginning of the trail is wide and not to mention beautiful. You cross the river/stream a couple of times. When you are at the "top" it gets a little confusing. We found the way to the lake with the help of orange markers on trees and carins. The lake is tucked in and beautiful. The way back down for some reason got really confusing. There were some carins we didn't see coming that we followed out. Well it lead us to nothing and we couldn't find the trail. Hint should that happen to you- get to the river and follow it- eventually you will hit the trail!

This is my very favorite hiking trail, due to the numerous stream crossings and abundance of wildflowers. The terrain varies between deep forest, open meadow, and tundra fields if you go all the way to the end where it connects with Rosalie trail. It can be muddy in spots, and there are some hefty climbs. On my review date we did make the full 13 mile out-and-back, but hiked two hours in with a faster (one hour) descent.
