    Directions to Trailhead

    The Pear Lake Trail is a wonderful day hike in the Colorado wilderness. Hike through dense woodlands, past granite outcroppings, along babbling streams and up to not one, but two alpine lakes! What more could you ask for? From the lakes enjoy expansive vistas of the surrounding snow-capped peaks.
