Description

This Spring hike takes place in the scenic Red Feather Lakes area.  It begins at the Lady Moon Trailhead with a short distance to meet up with the Molly Moon Trail, then going west all the way to Molly Lake.  The lake itself sets in a pretty valley with notable rock cliffs to the side.  In the distance one can see the effects of last year’s fires.  From Molly Lake we will return on Granite Ridge Trail for a loop.  The trails feature both open areas and some forest.  Total distance is 8.5 miles, elevation gain 1,463’ with maximum elevation of 8,621’.  This qualifies as a B hike, but the trails are easy and gradual.  Limit is 8 hikers.
