This moderate hike out of the small town of Crestone, CO is a beautiful entry into the Colorado high country. From the parking lot, this well-maintained trail gains nearly 3,000′ vertically before reaching Willow Lake. This trail can be the intro for a backpacking trip, a bid to summit multiple nearly 14ers, or it can simply be a beautiful day hike, like we opted for. Located in the Sangre de Cristo Wilderness, the lake is surrounded by some of Colorado’s more challenging 14ers, including the Crestone Needle and Crestone Peak.

Learning to Travel, is a travel video & social media company formed by Joyce & Daryle Dickens to help others identify and realize their dreams of “traveling more”. After years of “traveling more” talk with too little action, we finally went all-in on a life-changing 14-month journey to 23 countries and 23 US states. Since then, we’ve heard far too many people say “I wish I could do that” which has made us realize that most people need a little push to believe their travel dreams are possible and a little guidance to turn those dreams into reality. That inspiration and guidance is what https://LearningToTravel.com is all about.
