My out-and-back route. Some beautiful terrain and scenery on Hankins Trail. I expect the Aspens would be stunning in Fall.
The climb from the intersection of Hankins and Lake Park Trails into Lake Park was much tougher than I had anticipated. There are some okay views for the effort.
Good water is scarce in Lake Park, so fill up before leaving Hankins Trail.
Stay hydrated! I both overexerted and allowed myself to become dehydrated which led to me getting sick and throwing up in the middle of the night. Not fun at all.
