We decided to choose an old, familiar favorite for our first hike. We went to Bear Lake, hiked around, then headed all the way to our car at the Park and Ride lot, via Bierstadt Lake. A simple, four mile hike. We nearly killed ourselves. We rode the Park and Ride bus to the trailhead. There were 50 hikers each bus load, pouring off, eager to get their early morning hike going.

The KOA campground Chris found on the GPS was conveniently located not far from the interstate but it was next to a horse paddock so there were loads of flies and when the wind changed the smell was so bad you had to close all the doors and windows.
