nolan lake journey

Nolan Lake“The longest journey begins with a single step, not with a turn of the ignition key. That’s the best thing about a walking, the journey itself. It doesn’t much matter whether you get where your going or not. You’ll get there anyway. Every good hike brings you eventually back home. Right were you started.”   →Edward Abbey  

Yes, the journey for us always begins with a single step! While I believe every season is a great one to enjoy Colorado, summertime days are the perfect excuse to hit the trail. The Nolan Lake Trail is almost entirely uphill in order to reach the lake. Leaving from the Town of Fulford the trail is three miles long… did I mention it is uphill!? Oh and don’t forget the fun elevation factor. The trail itself is easy with few obstacles and no big water crossings. Nolan Creek flows adjacent to the trail at various sections, some offering picturesque views of waterfalls. The lake is well worth the hike.  It is nestled within a mountainous basin, seemingly hanging above the valley below. For the Mooseboy’s 9th birthday it was the perfect hike since the trail is an out-and-back, ending at the original trail head in Fulford. The views were splendid and the company was truly memorable! Have you ever hiked to Nolan Lake, we would love to hear about your Journey. Do you have a favorite hike?
