    I rate this 5 stars based on the views you have of the Rio Grande River Valley and the surrounding mountains that make up the Creede Caldera. Usually you will encounter a herd of Big Horn Sheep in the upper elevations of the trail but we didn’t encounter any on this trip. Take the side trip up to Crystal Lake if you have the time. It is a beautiful little alpine lake. The trail is well graded for the first 8 miles to the fork where it splits to go to Bristol Head or to Crystal Lake. From the fork the road becomes less well graded and rough but nothing that a higher clearance vehicle can’t handle. About a quarter mile from the summit, the trail becomes very rocky for a short stretch. Slow speed and tire placement will get you through the rocky section without problems. The only detractor of the trip is that you have to come down the same way you came up. Make the time to stop and see North Clear Creek Falls. You will not be sorry you did.

    Really nice hike around lake and along side of mountain. Easy to miss left turn at one mile mark. Signage gone. If you start up a mountain there and encounter another big trail sign , go back 30 yards and look for small trail now to the right

    As a local I would rate this as an easy hike. Did it in 2 hours (actually less forgot to turn off my trail recording), the top has what I would describe as easy rock scramble that you could do up right without hands. Enjoyed it and will add to my “quick hikes”. Hope this helps someone out there!

    Left Platoro on breakfast trail. About 1 hour to the top and first road. 10 minutes across to Kerr lake road then up a rocky steep road to Kerr lake for just less than 1 hour. Entire trip just under 2 hours.

    The hike was wonderful and the views very pretty. I picked a bad day. It was very cold and along the ridges and at the top the wind was so strong it knocked me over on a crumbly part of the trail where my footing want secure! I’ll do it again on a better day!

    I’m a low lander, but in better shape than most and the first leg of the hike up from Creede is a challenge. I stopped several time to let my HR catch up. The trail is steep wear stable shoes. The views are great, only saw one person.
