Ute Trail at Poudre Lake
Ute Trail is moderate in difficulty but it was a cold crisp day and wet from rain which made it slippery on steep rocky paths. We started the hike at Poudre Lake and the trail was muddy in places and you climbed upward and toward the rocky cliffs. The trail leads to the Alpine Visitor Center a distance of 5 miles which I was not prepared to do. Several hikers wearing appropriate hiking attire and backpacks past us on the trail. My feet and ankles needed a break from the previous days hiking trip.
