“A portion of the Colorado Trail that leads to a Wilderness Boundary.”— Marcel Slootheer
You'll be surrounded by trees most of the way, but just after a mile there is an open area with a great view towards the SE (towards Salida). The trail follows the contour most of the way, when you get close to Harvard Lakes there will be steeper fall-line sections that are hard to ride. You'll see the first lake on the right, the second one is on the left.
Soon after the lakes you'll get to Three Elk Creek, which is where the Collegiate Peaks Wilderness starts, and no mountain bikes are allowed. The 3 mile mark is the turn around point for this out & back ride.
Enjoy your time at the lakes (bring mosquito repellent) and have fun on the same singletrack all the way back to CO 365.
